OEKO-TEX® The Present & The Future: From product safety to the sustainable development, the journey we have been going through together for decades.
OEKO-TEX® updates the guidelines and the list of restricted substances for their certifications and services in the beginning of every year, followed by an official seminar held by the OEKO-TEX® accessories in January. The 2021 new regulations will come into effect on 1 April as usual. This online seminar will review the changes and deliver information specific to the regions. In the first part of this webinar, TESTEX will provide an intensive summary of the market development and the new changes for STANDARD 100, LEATHER STANDARD, MADE IN GREEN and STeP by OEKO-TEX®, with the second part focusing on recycled materials.
Recycled materials in STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
The demands for recycled materials for textile and fashion products have been increasing significantly due to climate change. As a result of the challenges posed to certify recycled materials with complex origins, OEKO-TEX® has integrated recycled materials into the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, by increasing testing frequencies and improving the re-porting process. Recycled materials are treated differently and certified separately as a special category, and an OEKO-TEX® hangtag to signify the use of recycled materials has been added for B2C marketing to raise awareness for environmental protection. We will review the major changes regarding recycled materials in the second part of this webinar.
