Oeko-Tex testing criteria includes new REACH chemicals
09
Jul '13
On 20 June 2013 the European Chemicals Agency ECHA added another six chemicals to their candidate list of Substances of Very High Concern. OEKO-TEX would like to expressly point out to all companies that the newly added substances are already part of the current OEKO-TEX Standard 100 testing criteria.

Each OEKO-TEX certificate also confirms that the certified products meet the current requirements of Annex XVII of the REACh Regulation with regard to restricted substances such as azo dyes or nickel.

The REACh Regulation applies across all industries and places the textile and clothing industry under the obligation to inform their buyers if the manufactured products contain SVHC substances in a concentration of more than 0.1 percent weight by weight.

Ever since the REACh regulation came into effect, the OEKO-TEX Association has been paying close attention to the SVHC substances that are identified and published in the candidate list.

If new candidate substances are relevant for textile production and are not yet listed in the criteria catalogue as independent test parameters, OEKO-TEX will check if an explicit inclusion is possible to ensure better comparability with other requirements for harmful substances.
