Mexico to Implement New Textile Labeling Standards

July 27, 2015

NMX-A-2076-INNTEX-2013 “Textiles – Chemical fibers – Generic names” lists the generic names used to designate the different types of chemical fibers currently being manufactured. The standard is based on the International Standard Organisation (ISO) 2076:2010, “Textile-Man-made fibers – Generic names,” replaces NMX-A-099-INNTEX-2007 and instructs that generic names shall be written without the use of capital letters.

NMX-A-6938-INNTEX-2013 “Textiles – Natural Fibers – Generic names and Definitions” provides the generic names and definitions of the most important natural fibers in accordance with the fiber constitution or specific origin, is consistent with the ISO 6938:2012, “Textile-Natural fibers-Generic names and Definitions”, and replaces NMX-A-099-INNTEX-2007

Released in the Official Gazette of Mexico November 2014, the new labeling standards are effective September 9, 2015.
