Questions & Answers about Oeko-Tex Certification A new, fact-filled, introductory information brochure for manufacturers and trade

The International Oeko-Tex Association is presenting a new brochure titled "Questions & Answers about Oeko-Tex Certification" in conjunction with the ITMA ASIA 2008.

Aimed at the textile and garment sectors, including specialist trade, the flyer gives interested firms a preliminary overview of the requirements (test criteria, cost, time commitment, quality assurance, etc.) and the process of obtaining certification (application, testing, renewal, extension, etc.) in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100.

Product classes, the function of the Oeko-Tex certificate and the role of Oeko-Tex Testing Institutes are introduced in short summaries, with highlights on a few distinctive features of the Oeko-Tex certification system. Among these, for example, are the requirement that ready-made garments must have their own Oeko-Tex Certificates, even when all component parts have successfully been certified already. In addition, the entire garment can only obtain its own licence number based on the testing of all components by the institute.

Another recently introduced, special Oeko-Tex Association service, is issuing what are called order certificates or excerpts. These consist of an excerpt from an existing certificate containing a concrete inventory and exact description of items on the order. In this way, traders who work with suppliers solely on commission basis can be rest assured the items they have ordered – even in the event of short production runs – will undoubtedly meet the required Oeko-Tex criteria.

The new information brochure is available in a number of languages and can be ordered free of charge from the German Oeko-Tex Certification Centre in Eschborn. A pdf-version can also be downloaded from the Oeko-Tex homepage.
