In 2018, the OEKO-TEX Association will endeavor to provide further targeted support on issues relating to consumer protection and sustainability throughout the textile value creation chain.
Existing guidelines for the OEKO-TEX product portfolio were updated on January 2nd. The new regulations will come into effect on April 1, 2018 for all certification systems and other services, following a three-month transition period.
The association will present the new product regulations in detail to interested companies during a webinar at 12:00 noon (EST, UTC-5) on January 30, 2018. Participation is free. Registration can be made at www.oeko-tex.com/webinar-updates-2018.
The updates of OEKO-TEX standards and guidelines are based on continuous exchange of experience with industry stakeholders, cooperation with initiatives and monitoring of legal regulations.
The work of OEKO-TEX expert groups takes into account current scientific innovations and knowledge as well as the latest market developments.
