The search form contains four search fields. Search terms can be entered/selected in one, several or all search fields depending on the specificity of the search.
The ‘free text’ field allows any free text terms to be entered, e.g. example names of companies, licence numbers, specific products or processing steps.
Please note: If your search for a license number isn't successful, please try searching for the number value only (e.g. "12345" instead of "CB-12345").
The other three fields contain lists of determined terms:
The search field 'product categories' provides for terms related to basic groups of textiles and garments in the fields 'product categories' and 'product specifications'.
The search field 'fields of operation' provides for terms related to basic processing and trade activities in the textile supply chain in the fields 'fields of operation' and 'specification of operation'.
It should be noted that the terms listed in the search fields 'product categories' and 'fields of operation' are not used equally and consistently in the various data sets. If a product category (e.g. 'babywear') is selected, only entries in which this term was used by the certifier providing the data will be shown. If 'baby' is entered into the free text field instead, more search results for companies producing any kind of babywear will be found.
If a country is selected in the search field only results from this country are shown. The country names are used consistently in all entries to the database. If a country is selected without using/selecting any other search fields, all certified companies in the selected country will be listed.
The data fields shown on the main page of search results are always the three fields 'company'. ‘country' and ‘product specifications’ even if the search term was found in another field. All the fields of the data set that contain entries are shown in the section 'details'.
