Dear YooA,

Thank you for your question. Please note that Korea-EU FTA has enterd into force since July 2011. If you have any further inquiries on import tariffs and FTA, please write to Ms. Sunhee Jung at Sunhee.Jung@fco.gov.uk who is in charge of fashion and textile in the South Korean market.

Additionally, she will send you a pdf which has BASIC CARE LABELLING INTRUCTIONS FOR TEXTILE GOODS/ APPAREL, DISTRIBUTED IN KOREA.
