Oeko-Tex updates guidelines for 2018

10 April 2018


The OEKO-TEX Association is again making every effort to provide support in the areas of consumer protection and sustainability along the textile value creation chain in 2018. The modifications of the existing guidelines in the Oeko-Tex product portfolio have now finally come into effect on 1 April 2018 following a three-month transition period and are valid for all certification systems and other services.

The updating of the Oeko-Tex standards and guidelines is based on a continual exchange of experiences with stakeholders from the industry, cooperation with initiatives and the monitoring of statutory regulations. The work by the Oeko-Tex expert groups takes into account on-going scientific innovations and findings as well as current market developments.

The most important changes are listed with reference to the individual Oeko-Tex products on the website https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/splashpage/index.xhtml
