GINETEX's five trademarked symbols have been registered in China and India. These are two important markets for GINETEX licensees as many national apparel brands are exporting and importing textile products in these markets.

The International Association for Textile Care Labelling (GINETEX) is an international network that aims to provide consumer with information on textile care by means of pictograms. The 5 main care symbols are an international trademark owned by GINETEX and are registered with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). A GINETEX has cooperated with the International Standards Organisation (lSO) and allows ISO to use its care labelling system to help ensure those care symbols have a global reach. The IS0 3758:2012 standard - 'Textiles - Care labelling code using symbols' informs textile and apparel manufacturers, suppliers and retailers all over the world about care labelling symbols and the appropriate related tests for materials and clothing to avoid causing any irreversible damage during washing, bleaching, drying, ironing and professional care.

During the last year, GINETEX has also concentrated on registering the symbols in South America, South Africa and several Arabian countries as these markets become more globally significant. Along with these countries, GINETEX's trademarked textile care symbols have been registered in China and India, this helps the promotion of using harmonized care symbols within the textile and clothing industries on a more global level as many national apparel brands are exporting and importing textile products in these markets.

Among GINETEX licensees, SGS Global Laboratories have the rights to use these symbols on our reports through our global membership of GINETEX. For more details, please don't hesitate to contact us.
