The OEKO-TEX certification is valid worldwide since 1992. Standard 100 is one of the OEKO-TEX certifications, it applies to all raw, semi-finished and finished textile products, at all stages of treatment and for all materials.
The OEKO-TEX system enables the rapid identification and elimination of potential sources of problem in substances at every stage of processing. As soon as a textile product undergoes further processing or a change in its chemical composition occurs, control is necessary.
The Fair Wear Foundation is a multi-stakeholder organization that works to monitor and improve working conditions in the textile industry. This independent foundation works in collaboration with member companies to improve and ensure decent working conditions. This collaboration is materialized by the Labor Code of the Fair Wear Foundation, based on 8 standard practices supported and inspired by the conventions of the ILO (International Labor Organization) and the International Declaration of Human Rights.
These practices are :
- Work is chosen and exercised freely.
- Prohibition of discrimination at work.
- Prohibition of child labor.
- Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.
- Obligation to pay a living wage.
- Controlled and reasoned working hours.
- Safe working conditions.
- Legally declared employment relationship.
