GOTS updates the rules
March 6, 2014,
New York - The Global Organic Textiles Standard, also known as GOTS, as of March 1 has newly published rules for textiles processing involving organic fibers.
Dubbed 4.0, the new version defines criteria through the full processing chain for home textiles and apparel, including spinning, knitting, weaving, wet processing, manufacturing, and trading.
According to GOTS, the new requirements are practical and technically achievable "even in large scale industrial textile production and for mass market brands and retailers."
GOTS Version 4.0 is available for download in PDF format at: http://www.global-standard.org/the-standard/latest-version.html.
