In 2019 the goal of the OEKO-TEX Association is to reinforce consumer protection and sustainability along the value creation chain for textiles and leather. Existing guidelines for the OEKO-TEX product portfolio have been amended again and the new regulations went into effect on April 1, 2019. Among the changes are the inclusion of benzene and four amine salts into the Standard 100 and Leather Standard along with the definition of limit values. The substance quinoline, which has been under observation since 2018, is now also regulated with a limit value. For more information, visit www.oeko-tex.com.
