Global Organic Textile Standard Consultation
Next phase of consultation on the revision of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
GOTS has opened a second round of consultation on the Standards and Manual, which incorporates changes that were agreed in response to the first round of consultation over the Summer. We would like licenses to review the changes and provide us with your views.
As a founder member and a GOTS certifier, the Soil Association and Soil Association Certification are stakeholders in the revision process and will be providing feedback on the proposed changes for consideration by the GOTS Standards Committee and Advisory Council (members of our Standards Team have seats on both committees).
To see GOTS’ responses to the first round of consultation feedback, track-changes versions of the Standards and Manual and to download the feedback form, please download the file below.
Please note that GOTS is no longer accepting new comments, feedback can only relate to the proposed changes.
Please mail your feedback form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
GOTS’ aim with the consultation is to ensure that the Standards and Manual “set strict and binding requirements for ecological and social parameters while acknowledging the need for practicability in industrial production of a wide range of products”.
The closing date for feedback is Thursday 31st October.
