What should you know about textile labelling requirements when exporting to Japan?

Various EU products and services began to enjoy benefits from the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) which entered in force on 1 February 2019, and we are seeing a considerable increase of EU exports to Japan. But yet many EU exporters, particularly small and medium-scaled enterprises (SMEs) perceive access to Japanese market difficult because of unfamiliar trade and business practices.

This is a series of online training which presents the latest market information available in 2020 and explain in practical terms the most important things that EU companies should know when exporting to Japan so that the benefits of free trade can become more widely available to EU exporters for the second year of the EU-Japan EPA.

EU textile and clothing exports to Japan grew in the framework of the EU-Japan EPA. EU companies particularly enjoyed the benefits on apparel, wools and animal hair products.

This session reviews relevant technical regulations to EU exports to Japan so that the benefits of free trade can become more widely available to EU manufacturers and exporters for the second and third years of the EU-Japan EPA. The webinar particularly targets at EU SME companies in textile and clothing sector.
