Chemical inputs validation

MANUFACTURER AND SUPPLIER OF RAW MATERIALS

Ecocert Greenlife is now accredited for the evaluation and issuing of positive lists of chemical inputs according to GOTS (version 4) for use in the production of GOTS certified products.

The compliance criteria for raw materials are set out in the GOTS standard.

The specifications' requirements focus particularly on:

  • Total prohibition of aromatic solvents, GMOs, fungicides and biocides, halogenated solvents, heavy  metals (non exhaustive list) 
  • Requirements related to hazards and toxicity: (risk phrases, aquatic toxicity, biodegradation…)

The chemical inputs receive an approval letter for their compliance to one of the standards declared above and are also published on the Ecocert Greenlife database to which access is reserved to the companies undergoing certification. This will help the promotion to your customers of the compliance of your textile inputs with the GOTS requirements.

The documents are available on demand.
