The quality of the products of the technical textile industry is controlled by many organizations in charge of certifying their origin and their production process.
Healthy textile for the skin, organic, ecological or GMO-free fabric, recycled fabric, fireproof fabric, anti-static, anti-dust... all these qualities, particularly expected in certain applications of technical textiles, are guaranteed by specific labels and certifications.
But what do those labels and certifications really mean?
What is the difference between labels and certifications ?
A label attests to the legitimacy of a company’s commitment
A label recognizes the commitment of companies or organizations to greater responsibility and sustainability.
It is the guarantee that a company, an organization, a product or a service meets the standards defined by the certifying agency.
A label is a guarantee of transparency
It is also a way to be transparent with its customesr et its network of partners.
Indeed, a label ensures that the values promoted by the company are put into practice.
A label shows recognition by a third-party organization
A label is granted by independent organizations that conduct an audit of a product's manufacturing process to determine its eligibility for a label.
This independence allows the control agency to be objective and impartial and therefore to ensure all stakeholders (customers, suppliers, partners, etc.) that the label standards are respected.
In addition, some labels must be renewed every year to ensure that the product or service still meets the criteria of the label and is up to date with the new regulations in force.
