GOTS - GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD

GOTS - GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD


The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is an internationally recognised organic textile standard. Since its introduction in 2006, GOTS has demonstrated its practical feasibility and is supported by the growth in consumption of organic fibres and the demand for unified processing criteria from the industry and retail sectors.

GOTS ensures the organic status of textiles from the harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labelling, to provide credible assurances to the consumer. The standard covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading, and distribution of all textiles made from at least 70 per cent certified organic natural fibres. The final fibre products may include but are not limited to, yarns, fabrics, clothes, and home textiles. However, this standard does not set criteria for leather products. 
OCS BLENDED - ORGANIC CONTENT STANDARD

OCS BLENDED - ORGANIC CONTENT STANDARD


The Organic Content Standard (OCS) applies to any non-food product containing 5-100 percent organic material. It verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product. Further OCS tracks the flow of a raw material from its source to the final product. This process is then certified by an accredited third party.

The OCS relies on third-party verification to confirm whether a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material. OCS allows for transparent, consistent, and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of organic material content claims on products. OCS covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading, and distribution of a product that contains at least 5 percent certified ‘organic’ materials. It can be used as a business-to-business tool to give companies the means to ensure that they are selling quality and getting what they pay for. 
RCS / RCS BLENDED – RECYCLED CLAIM STANDARD

RCS / RCS BLENDED – RECYCLED CLAIM STANDARD


The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) verifies the presence and quantity of recycled material in a final product. This is done by third-party verification of the inputs and the chain of custody. It enables transparent, consistent, comprehensive, and independent assessment and verification of claims of recycled material content in products. 
GRS - GLOBAL RECYCLE STANDARD

GRS - GLOBAL RECYCLE STANDARD


The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) was originally developed by Control Union Certifications in 2008 and ownership was passed to the Textile Exchange on 1 January 2011. The GRS is an international, voluntary, full-product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions.

The GRS is intended to meet the needs of companies looking to verify the recycled content of their products (both finished and intermediate) and to verify responsible social, environmental, and chemical practices in their production. The objectives of the GRS are to define requirements to ensure accurate content claims and good working conditions, and that harmful environmental and chemical impacts are minimized. This includes companies in ginning, spinning, weaving, and knitting, dyeing and printing and stitching in more than 50 countries.  
SMETA AUDITS

SMETA  AUDITS


The Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX) is a web-based system designed to help organizations manage data on labor practices in their supply chain. Members have the benefit of being able to publish their SMETA audit reports directly on the SEDEX system for viewing by all customers.

SEDEX members have agreed the Best Practice Guide, a common methodology to improve audit standards and promote mutual acceptance of audit reports. In addition to the principles in the ETI Base Code, SMETA also reviews performance against the right to work of migrant workers, management systems and implementation, sub-contracting and home working, and environmental issues.
ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001:2015


Implementing ISO 9001:2015 enables continuous improvement of our organisation's quality management systems (QMS) and processes. In turn, this improves the ability of our operations to meet customer requirements and expectations.

ISO 9001:2015 is based on eight quality management principles:
•    Customer focus;
•    Leadership;
•    Involvement of people;
•    Process approach;
•    System approach;
•    Continual improvement;
•    Fact-based decision making;
•    Mutually beneficial supplier relationships.

Quality Management System certification from SGS helps our organization develop and improve performance. ISO 9001:2015 certification enables us to demonstrate high levels of service quality when bidding for contracts and a valid ISO 9001:2015 certificate shows that our organization follows internationally recognized quality management principles.

SEAQUAL INITIATIVE


Seaqual Initiative is a community of individuals, organizations and companies working together to help clean our oceans, raise awareness of the issue of marine litter and highlight those helping to fight it.

It works with the waste management and recycling industries to transform marine litter into Upcycled Marine Plastic so that leading brands and manufacturers can create inspiring sustainable products. Find out more here. Tetribérica is proud to be part of the Seaqual Initiative.

We're proud to work with members of the 

BETTER COTTON
INITIATIVE


The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) — a global not-for-profit organization — is the largest cotton sustainability program in the world. In the 2018-19 cotton season, 2.3 million BCI Farmers received training on more sustainable farming practices and produced 5.6 million tonnes of Better Cotton – which equates to 22% of global cotton production.
Tetribérica is part of the BCI platform so we can acquire our materials from BCI members and deliver BCI garments. Find out more about BCI here.
