Donald S. Clark, Secretary Federal Trade Commission 600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington DC, 20580 RE: Textile Rules, 16 CFR Part 303, Project No. P948404 Dear Mr. Clark, This is a response to the Federal Trade Commission's Federal Register Notice published May 20, 2013, requesting comments on the Commission's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking relating to the Rules and Regulations Under the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act ("Textile Fiber Rules"). I consult to the textile industry regarding the Textile Fiber Rules and am pleased to see that the Commission has accepted the recommendations, made by the industry, to incorporate the updated ISO standard 2076:2010(E) and allow certain hang-tags that do not disclose the product's full fiber content information. These changes will facilitate both domestic manufacturing and international trade and are particularly helpful in the context of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, negotiations toward which commence on July 8th. Yours, David Trumbull, Principal Agathon Associates
