Certain products placed on the French market have to be labelled with the Triman symbol and the sorting information. This also concerns textiles. If you bring textiles onto the French market, this information is highly relevant for you.
What is the sorting information about?
According to the decree n°2021-835 from 29th June 2021, all French take-back systems have to develop a sorting information per waste stream, with the purpose to help the consumers sort their waste correctly. For each waste stream (e. g. electrical and electronic appliances, batteries, furniture and household packaging) different pictograms have been published.
The information for the consumer always consists of the Triman symbol together with the info-tri (sorting information), which have to be displayed together. All items of clothing, household linen and footwear brought onto the French market are concerned.
Time schedule for the implementation
The sorting information is compulsory since 1st January 2022 and has to be implemented by 1st February 2023 at the latest. An additional transition period is being granted until 1st August 2023 for the sale of stocks manufactured or imported into France before 1st February 2023.
