According to the No. 23 Announcement issued by Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China on June 2, 2017, 2749 industry standards were abolished, including certain industry standards regarding softlines. The abolishment has been effective since the issue date of the announcement. These abolished standards should no longer be used. The abolished standards either have corresponding national standards or had overlapping scopes with other industry or national standards.

FZ/T 81003-2003 Children clothing and students wear* is an important product standard for children apparel and students wear, which has been used as a product standard and implemented by some manufacturers. After this standard was abolished, products labelled using this standard need to replace the product standard with an appropriate applicable one. Such examples of possible applicable standards are FZ/T 73045-2013 Knitted children’s wear, GB/T 31900-2015 Woven children’s clothing, etc. The implementation standard on the label will need to be adjusted.

FZ/T 01053-2007 Identification of fiber content was implemented on Nov 1, 2007. Many product standards published after Nov 1, 2007 cite this standard for fiber content requirements. After this standard is abolished, manufacturers are suggested to apply GB/T 29862-2013 Textiles-Identification of fiber content for the identification of fiber content.

Some of the abolished standards which were important to softlines are listed in the following table. These standards can be divided into five categories based on applicability, including final product, raw material product, accessory product, method, and identification.
