Textile Rules, 16 CFR Part 303, Project No. P948404 Dear Sirs and Madames, IKEA is asking the FTC to take into consideration the new EU regulations (Regulation (EU) No 1007/2011 on textile fibre names and related labelling of the fibre composition of textile products) and to align the US rules to the new EU regulation as much as possible, especially in regards to accepted fiber names and tolerances for fiber content. Link to the new EU regulations: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2011:272:0001... Thank you and Best Regards, Malin Nasman malin.nasman@ikea.com
