Meeting international textile standards

Advanced Textiles | May 1, 2009 | By:

Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Certification gives manufacturers, retailers and consumers confidence that their textile products are safe for human use, ensuring that the products are tested for harmful levels of more than 100 potentially dangerous substances that could adversely affect human health. The certification also provides third-party validation that textiles comply with the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulating products for children

The International Oeko-Tex Association operates in more than 40 countries, providing a worldwide quality control network at a time when travel budgets and time may be limited. Its modular approach to certifying each textile supply chain component gives companies credit for using fibers, yarns, fabrics, threads, inks, findings and other product components that are already Oeko-Tex certified.
