OEKO-TEX > Certification

Oeko-Tex Standard 100


By applying to an authorised test institute of the International Oeko-Tex Association, companies in the textile chain can have their products certificated. The extent of testing required is determined by means of selected representative samples or by presenting preliminary materials which have already been certificated under Oeko-Tex. Once tests have been passed and a declaration of conformity signed, the certificate can be issued. This certificate entitles the company to endorse the certificated article group in question.

An Oeko-Tex certificate is valid for 12 months. The test number which is issued on first certification is used on the Oeko-Tex label and remains valid for as long as certification continues to be renewed. The certificate can only be extended by applying for a further 12 months, and this entails renewed testing of the materials being processed. The costs incurred by certification are firstly the cost of the actual testing that is necessary, which can be calculated by obtaining a cost estimate in advance, and secondly the certification fee.
