New Mexican Textile And Clothing Labelling Standards September

- May 23, 2017 -

The two revised standards for the labelling of textiles and garments products implemented by the Mexican Ministry of Economy will enter into force on September 9, 2015 and become part of Mexico's mandatory legislation.


In general, all garments, garments, textile products and household textiles exceeding 50% of textile ingredients must conform to the official Mexican standard mandatory labelling requirements.

The main change to the new standard is that the generic name must not be capitalized. Nmx-A-6938 "Textiles-Natural fibres-universal nomenclature and definitions" replaces Nmx-A-099, providing the universal name and definition of the most important natural fibres in terms of fiber structure or specific sources.


The new standards also require that for garments and garments accessories, one or more permanent and readable labels, messages with labels in any language other than Spanish or Spanish will be attached to the neckline, waist or any other conspicuous position. This labelling message must include the name of the commercial brand, the fiber ingredient, the size, the maintenance instructions, the country of origin and the manufacturer/Importer's name and address, with the voluntary reference to the federal taxpayer registration number.
