April 20, 2015

The Egyptian Organization for Standardization and Quality (EOS) has released Standard ES 1405/2014 "Care Labelling Code Using Symbols," and mandated by Ministerial Decree no. 423/2005 for producers and importers of textile products.

The standard describes the Care Labelling Code that must be used in textile products and care signs, and provides information for most treatment services to prevent visible damage to the product during textile care and operations.

The standard covers the following household purposes of textile products:

  • Washing
  • Whitening
  • Drying after washing
  • Ironing
  • Specialized care for textile processors when wet and dry cleaning

The standard complies with ISO 3758/2012 Textiles – Care Labelling Code Using Symbols.
