On 22 October 2018 Tisco s.p.a. obtained the OEKO-TEX® – STANDARD 100 certification Class II (items in direct contact with skin) no. 18CX00083

The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels.
The OEKO-TEX® – STANDARD 100 control system’s objective is to obtain products free of potentially harmful substances, and analyze any non-textile components in the product’s manufacturing process.
The objective of OEKO-TEX® – STANDARD 100 is to implement a reliable product label for consumers and a uniform safety standard for the assessment of harmful substances for textile and clothing manufacturers
Thanks to OEKO-TEX®’s experience, since the year 1992 the trademark contributes to high and effective product safety from a consumer’s point of view, as test criteria and limit values in many cases go far beyond applicable national and international standards. Extensive product checks and regular company visits also ensure that the industry has a globally sustainable awareness of the responsible use of chemicals.
Following the successful result of the audit and following the positive feedback received from the qualified Certification Institute, on January 20th 2020 our company obtained the GOTS Certification under license ICEA-TX-1134.
Thanks to this certification, Tisco S.p.a. has now the license to use the GOTS trademark for the dyeing and finishing processes of the fabrics that need to respect the GOTS standards.
GOTS is a trademark aknowledged at global level, it is supported by the main biological agriculture organizations (e.g. Textile Exchange, Organic Trade Association, IVN, Japanese Organic Cotton Association, Soil Association) and guarantees a non-polluting and sustainable production chain.
For this purpose GOTS sets many strict rules that must be observed from all the companies involved in the textile industry, starting from the fibers harvest through all the production steps aimed to the generation of a “green” output that can be certified with the GOTS label.
As verified during the audit, our internal procedures guarantee the proper selection chemical products that are GOTS compliant and our organization supports the enhancement processes to obtain final products that satisfy all the standards requested from the qualified Institute ICEA.
