Textile Fiber Products Identification Act Law and Legal Definition

The Textile Fiber Products Identification Act refers to the federal law that sets regulations regarding the advertising and labeling of textile fiber products. The Act requires Federal Trade Commission approval of all newly manufactured fiber before it can be marketed in the U.S.

When 5 percent of the fiber is present in the product, the Act makes it compulsory to use generic names, such as cotton, rayon or silk.

The term textile fiber product under the Act means:

a. any fiber, whether in the finished or unfinished state, used or intended for use in household textile articles;

b. any yarn or fabric, whether in the finished or unfinished state, used or intended for use in household textile articles; and

c. any household textile article made in whole or in part of yarn or fabric. [15 USCS § 70].
