RN NUMBER: A registered identification number (RN) is issued by the U. S. Federal Trade Commission to a business residing in the U. S. that is engaged in the manufacture, importing, distributing, or sale of textile, wool, or fur products. Such businesses are not required to have an RN. However, the RN can be used in place of a name on the label or tag, that is required to be affixed to these products.
The RN number is helpful for consumers when trying to contact a manufacturer with a question, comment, or complaint. You can access and search the FTC data base on their web site. Usually there will be both an address and telephone number listed.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: The Care Labeling Rule requires clothing manufacturers and importers to provide at least one satisfactory method of care necessary for the ordinary use of the garment. The label must also provide warnings against the use of any method which the consumer can reasonably expected to use that would harm the product. Note that fabrics on a bolt should have care instructions on the end of the bolt.
The laundry instructions are to provide instructions for, in order, washing, bleaching, drying, and ironing; and drycleaning instructions are to include one symbol. Click to learn the Care Symbols.
