OEKO-TEX adds safe in terms of human ecology certificate

Switzerland-based OEKO-TEX has introduced a new certificate for textiles– ‘Made in Green by OEKO-TEX’, which proves that the textiles are safe in terms of human ecology and are additionally produced in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.

The new certificate replaces the previous certification system ‘OEKO-TEX Standard 100plus’ and the Spanish mark ‘Made in Green by Aitex’.

“The latter is already used by several companies, of which Mango is the most well-known fashion brand, who use it to distinguish their products,” Oeko Tex informs.

With the STeP by OEKO-TEX certification, brand suppliers, manufacturers and retailers have, since last year, been able to have their production plants assessed, analysed and audited by the OEKO-TEX institutes with regard to sustainable production conditions.

As a logical enhancement to this, OEKO-TEX recently also developed MySTeP database which enables the central administration of existing OEKO-TEX certificates and optimum management of the complete supply chain with regard to sustainable key performance indicators (KPIs).

With the established OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and the latest range of OEKO-TEX services, the textile and clothing industry now has at its disposal a complete up-to-date package which can specifically support companies on their path to improved product safety and sustainability.

OEKO-TEX General Secretary Dr. Jean-Pierre Haug says, “Using the given test number and a QR code, the textiles and the manufacturing process can be uniquely tracked.”

Dr Haug explains, “Other prerequisites apply for the allocation of the ‘Made in Green by OEKO-TEX’ label than for the ‘OEKO-TEX Standard 100plus’ and ‘Made in Green by Aitex’.

"We understand that not all companies can meet the requirements for the new product certification 'Made in Green by OEKO TEX' straight away. However, we offer all companies the best possible support in the implementation of the necessary prerequisites." (AR)
