Introduced at the end of 2011, this EU regulation has brought together three previous regulations – directives covering ternary fibre mixtures (73/44/EEC), binary fibre mixtures (96/73/EC) and textile names (2008/121/EC) – which ultimately means that fibre content labelling and fibre content testing have now been combined into one single piece of legislation.   

The European Commission states that it decided to revise the legislation on textiles names to simplify and improve the existing regulatory framework for the development and uptake of novel fibres, with a view to encourage innovation in the textile and clothing sector.
