About Garment Labelling in the EU post Brexit

Leaving the EU means that there are new labelling requirements for UK companies selling into the EU. Most requirements apply across all 27 members of the EU; others may only apply to individual countries. UK brands and retailers will need to be aware of all the various requirements. This is important whether you are selling to companies, retailers or direct to EU consumers. The requirements apply to all sales, irrespective of whether the sales channel is online or wholesale.

The UKFT Guide covers:

  • EU Responsible Company (EURC)
  • Fibre content
  • MADE IN…
  • Care labelling (including use of the GINETEX symbols)
  • Clevercare
  • Safety labelling (including Flammability, CE/CA marking
  • Labelling product sold via your website
  • Placement and attachment of label

As part of our membership services, UKFT can advise companies on all labelling requirements in all countries. Find out more here.
