    1. Scope

    1.1 This standard is the compilation of all terminology developed by Subcommittee D13.11 on Cotton Fibers.

    1.2 This terminology is unique to the Cotton Fibers industry. Meanings of the same terms used outside the industry can be found in other compilations or in dictionaries of general usage.

    1.3 In addition to being a specialized dictionary, D7139 is also a tool for managing the Subcommittee’s terminology. This includes finding, eliminating, and preventing redundancies, that is, where two or more terms relating to the same concept are defined in different words.

    1.4 Terms listed are under the jurisdiction of Subcommittee D13.11.

    1.5 For definitions of other textile terms see Terminology D123.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
