GREIFF receives Oeko-Tex® Standard Certification!

The OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is an independent test and certification system for textile raw, intermediate and end products at all stages of processing. Criteria

The tests for harmful substances cover

– legally banned and controlled substances

– chemicals known to be harmful to the health (but not yet legally controlled)

– parameters for health protection

Taken in their entirety, the requirements go far beyond existing national legislation. Certification

Standard 100 is that all components of an article, without exception, comply with the required criteria – so not only the outer material, but also the sewing threads, linings, prints etc and any non-textile accessories such as buttons, zips, rivets etc.
