Textile Exchange introduces new Organic Content Standard
Feb '13
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) is a new chain of custody standard to track certified organically grown raw materials through the supply chain through the use of scope certificate and transaction certificates, all verified by an independent third-party. The OCS will replace the OE 100 and OE Blended standards, within an allowed transition time.

•The OCS will allow any kind of certified organically grown material; it is not limited to cotton.

•The OCS combines the former OE 100 and OE Blended into one standard. There will continue to be two options for labeling, according to final organic material percentages and whether it has been blended with its conventional counterpart.

How can the OCS be used?

Because the OCS can be used with any raw material, it is relevant for industries beyond textiles. The standard combines an organic farming certification requirement with the chain of custody requirements of the Content Claim Standard (CCS).
