LAUREL, Md., and NEW YORK — The Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI) and the National Cleaners Association (NCA) are teaming up to protect and improve the Care Label Rule as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reopens it for public comment.
The associations will file joint comments and are asking all cleaners to share their comments with the FTC by the Sept. 6 deadline in a process that requires only a few steps to do online.
The FTC is concerned with all aspects of the Care Label Rule, the associations say, but is looking for comments on:
The need to require care labeling
Whether or not to include professional wetcleaning in the rule
If the rule should be modified to account for current or impending changes in technology or economic conditions
Whether some parts of the rule are no longer necessary
If languages other than English should appear on care labels
The FTC is also asking if any rule modifications might increase benefits or reduce costs for small businesses.
