CAA to Enforce New Care Labeling Standard for Textiles

December 8, 2016

The Consumer Affairs Agency (CAA) of Japan is set to enforce JIS L0001-2014 “Textiles – Care Labeling Code Using Symbols” on December 1, 2016.

This new standard contains five major care labeling symbols with 41 sub-symbols. The five major care labeling symbols are:

  • Washing
  • Bleaching
  • Drying
  • Ironing
  • Professional textile care treatments of dry and wet cleaning

This standard will be replacing current JIS L0217-1995. The standard aims to harmonize with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 3758:2012 “Textile – Care Labeling Code Using Symbols”.

This standard was published on March 31, 2015.
