ISO/TR 12116:2008 describes four methods designed to simulate, by means of laboratory colour-fastness tests, the colour changes which take place in clothing during actual wear. The four methods are applicable to the following types of clothing:
- sports clothing (method 1);
- smocks and other shirt-like outer garments worn outdoors (method 2);
- indoor clothing and underwear (method 3);
- military uniforms (method 4).
