 NATIONAL MATTERS.
At present a national committee is working with government and A.T.O on GST Issues. We are represented on two Australian Standards Committees, Care Labelling and Furnishing Fabrics. We are also working on new recommendations with the Dry Cleaning Industry to improve drape dry cleaning standards (particularly coated fabrics).


REFERENCE MANUAL. (Trade standards and practices)
This manual contains a considerable amount of information for our industry. It is available to members.


COUNTRY MEMBERS.
State representatives try very hard to visit our Country Members. Individual visits are often impossible, but we do try to arrange functions in areas that are central to the cut distance problem a little. If you wish to discuss this please contact our office.


CARE LABELS.
Our Queensland chapter is responsible for distributing Care Labels and fibre content labels, which are compulsory - they must be sewn into every item of soft furnishings. Please PH: 1300 360 783 or FAX: 1300 850 783 for more information.
