Product Quality Seal / Multi-Stakeholder Initiative
Allows consumers to identify textile products made up of >95% organic material.
The OCS 100 is a voluntary standard that relies on third-party verification to confirm whether a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material.
Verifying Organic Content: Only material from certified organic farms (under one of IFOAM’s Family of Standards) is accepted to the OCS.
Confident Communication: Products that meet all requirements may be labelled with the OCS logo.
Chain of custody: Certification ensures that the identity of the organic content is maintained: from the farm to the final product.
The standard does not cover the certification of raw materials used in a product nor the use of chemicals or any social or environmental aspects of production beyond the integrity of the organic material.
