The GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Version 5.0 was published March 1, 2017, three years after the Version 4.0 was introduced and 12 years after the launch of the first version. The high ecological and social requirements as well as worldwide practicability and verifiability were considered in the revision work, in order to achieve a reliable and transparent set of criteria.
The aim of the GOTS is to define world-wide recognized requirements that ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide credible assurance to the end consumer. This certification allows WPT Nonwovens to export organic cotton nonwoven materials with one certification accepted in all major markets.
WPT Nonwovens' GOTS certificate covers organic cotton ladies’ sanitary products resin bonded nonwoven RB-401-60-W/R.
