International trade regulations in the Textiles, interior textiles and carpets sector

Introduction

This guide provides an overview of the textiles sector, the key regulations you will need to comply with as an exporter or importer and selected sources of further help and support.

This guide will explain how the sector is made up, what the key drivers are, and provides statistics for textile imports and exports. You'll find information on export licences and how to research an export country, as well as how to classify your goods and find the tariffs, quotas and licences required for importing textiles. In addition to regulations governing exports and imports of textiles, the guide provides access to a database of domestic regulations.
