Care Labeling Rule, 16 CFR Part 423, Project No. R511915
In relation to the proposed rulemarking, we welcome your intention to permit use of ISO 3758:2005(E)to simplify the provision of care instructions. Nevertheless, we wish to draw to your attention that the most recent version is ISO 3758: 2012. Though the 2005 version is the accepted standard in several South American countries, the majority of countries allowing use of the ISO standard now require the 2012 version. There are some differences in symbols and instructions between the two standards. We therefore respectfully urge you to adopt the 2012 version as the reference standard to simplify the labeling of textile products destined for multiple world markets.
Thank you for your attention.
