Several independent individuals or companies have been offering expert consultancy services to the textile industry to achieve certification to GOTS for textile operations or to receive approval for chemical inputs.
GOTS acknowledges the fact that there is a need that these individuals or companies are vetted and approved by GOTS so that they disseminate accurate information to the textile industry. GOTS has therefore formulated a policy to ensure that the industry receives correct knowledge of the standard requirements and the mandatory processes and procedures within the operations of a GOTS certified entity.
The policy covers approval of formal consultancy services imparted to prospective or existing GOTS Certified Entities or Operators, Chemical Suppliers, Brands and Retailers at their request. Approvals to individuals will only be granted after evaluation of a formal application (using the application form) and payment of the required application fees. The application has to be submitted to the GOTS Management. On successful completion of assessment, the consultant will be formally required to sign a contract with GOTS as part of the approval process.
GOTS Approved Consultants will be listed on the GOTS website and will have limited leave to use the trademarked GOTS logo
