Argentine Textile Standard
OIA has collaborated since the beginning of the development of the Argentine Textile Standard, working in collaboration with national entities, textile producers and industries. As a result of this work, the first national textile standard with international recognition was issued.
This program certifies the primary production and trade of natural vegetal or animal fibres, verifying the textile processing and labelling of garments made with organic fibres (cotton, linen, wool, etc.).
The scope of this standard reaches fibre scouring and combing.
National Organic Program (NOP)
This program certifies the primary production and trade of natural vegetal or animal fibres, verifying the textile processing and labelling of garments made with organic fibres (cotton, linen, wool, etc.) according to the USA organic standards (National Organic Program).
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
GOTS is an organic international standard for the processing of textile products made with organic fibres. It defines high level requirements along the supply chain, from the processing of the fiber, the labeling until the commercialization, with an environmental and socially responsible approach.
The growth of organic fibre consumption and the demand of unified criteria for industrial processes and the retail stage encouraged international standard entities to develop GOTS certification as a trustworthy guarantee for consumers.
OIA has been accredited for the inspection and certification of textile processing, manufacturing, finishing and retailing.
Scope of OIA-GOTS certification:
Certification of textile mechanical processes (combing, carding, spinning, etc.).
Certification of wet processing (scouring, dyeing, etc.) and finishing of garments.
It is a standard that currently defines the highest level of sustainability of textiles by applying the maximum parameters achievable to production and to the product.
Since 2000, BEST incorporates the guidelines for sustainable textiles based on definitions of ecology and social responsibility formulated by Internationalen Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e. V. (IVN), applied to the entire textile production chain. It includes social norms based on the parameters formulated by the International Labor Organization (ILO).
