STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished and finished materials for the textile industry at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used.
It is the first product label to certify that all products have been tested and certified by an independent entity and are free of harmful substances that pose a health risk.
With a more comprehensive control of products and regular audits to companies, the standard is responsible for raising awareness on a global basis for the sustainability of the textile industry and the responsible use of chemical substances.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is attributed to products that contain at least 70% certified organic fibres (products carrying a label grade “made with organic”) or 95% organic fibres (labelled “organic”).
The aim of the standard is to guarantee the traceability of products, eliminating the use of hazardous chemicals for the environment and human health and to ensure a quality system, energy efficiency and the respect of certain social criteria.
This is a tool for an international common understanding including all the steps of textile processing, from fibre to the final product.
The Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX) is an organization whose objective is to establish a standard social audit process and help drive continuous improvement in all tiers of the supply chain.
Following a SMETA audit procedure, based on its own methodology and reports, all Sedex members have access to the results thus avoiding, in certain cases, the duplication of audits by different clients.
In addition to meeting customers’ requirements, these audits allow to identify and drive improvements in labour standards and possible legal non-compliances (in the scope of labour legislation), fostering improvements in the area of labour and consequently productivity. On the other hand, it allows to anticipate and avoid possible fines related to labour legislation. Obtaining this seal allows potential customers to know in advance that a company operates according to high quality and ethical standards and social responsibility.
