Certification & Labelling

With the rise of the conscious consumer and the global movement towards sustainable development, claiming to have a sustainable supply chain is no longer enough.

The Global Organic Textile Standard covers the entire production process based on the use of organic fibres from textile processing and manufacturing up to licensing and labelling. While this is a rigorous process in which all criteria must be met, the result is an internationally recognized organic certification demonstrating to stakeholders, partners, and consumers your commitment to providing sustainable, ethical, and high-quality products.

In this section you can find out more about what types of entities can be certified, what the steps are, how to get in touch with approved organic certification bodies near you, and what you can do with your GOTS certification. The Guidelines especially developed for Virtual Audits during COVID-19 can be found here. For more in depth information on the specific ecological and social criteria that need to be met, go to this section. If you are interested in how to become a GOTS approved certification body go here.

The completion of GOTS certification by an approved certifier includes the right to use the GOTS logo on GOTS goods. This section describes for you the relevant licensing and labelling conditions.
