A registered identification
number or RN is a number issued by the Federal Trade Commission,
upon request, to a business residing in the U.S. that is engaged
in the manufacture, importing, distribution, or sale of textile,
wool, or fur products. Such businesses are not required to have
RNs. They may, however, use the RN in place of a name on the
label or tag that is required to
be affixed to these products.
note: Some of the
information in this directory may be out of date. It
reflects the information provided to the Commission on
the original RN application or the most recent update.
However, businesses may have moved, changed their name,
or gone out of business without informing the Commission.
The Commission hopes that placing the directory on its
web site will encourage RN holders to check
the information and UPDATE it,
if necessary. At some time in the future, the Commission
may cancel numbers that appear to be no longer in use
or do not reflect accurate identifying information.
