Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation of the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), see www .iso .org/

iso/ foreword .html.

This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 38, Textiles, Subcommittee SC 2, Cleansing,

finishing and water resistance tests, in collaboration with the European Committee for Standardization

(CEN) Technical Committee CEN/TC 248, Textiles and textile products, in accordance with the agreement

on technical cooperation between ISO and CEN (Vienna Agreement).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 30023:2010), of which it constitutes a

minor revision. The changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:

— Table 1 has been redesigned in accordance with the latest edition of ISO 15797, to enable precise

referencing in the assignment of the washing processes of this document.

Any feedback or questions on this document should be directed to the user’s national standards body. A

Introduction

ISO 15797 was developed to assist manufacturers, suppliers and launderers to assess and specify

workwear garments for use in the textile rental industry. ISO 15797 also had an application in the

emerging personal protective equipment (PPE) clothing market.

While ISO 15797 made a significant beneficial impact on the industry, there was still a requirement to

supply information in a clear but uncomplicated way down an often-extended chain to the launderer.

A labelling code using symbols (see ISO 3758) has been successfully used for this purpose by the retail

textile industry for many years and has, by and large, proved to be a success for textile producers,

retailers, detergent suppliers, professional dry and wet cleaners and, of course, the customer who

launders the products at home.

No such labelling code existed for the professional laundry sector. This document provides an

equivalent, but visually distinctly different, code of symbols for the professional industrial laundering

of workwear and protective clothing.
