  • (1888PressRelease) November 11, 2021 - China’s new industry standard for jackets – FZ/T 81008-2021 – came into effect on July 1, 2021. Issued by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology as part of the No. 6 announcement on approved industry standards, made in 2021, it replaces FZ/T 81008-2011.

    The updated standard is applicable to jackets that are predominantly made from woven fabrics. It does not apply to jackets for infants aged less than or equal to 36 months.

    The standard includes multiple additions, revisions and deletions. These include the addition of requirements for trim and embroidery thread colorfastness and tear force, revisions to physical and chemical performance and the direction of warp and weft, and the deletion of a test method for seam slippage.
