Organic Textiles are based on organic fibres, GOTS certification covers the processing, manufacturing and trading of organic textiles. The certification of fibre production is on the basis of recognised international standards that are approved in the IFOAM Family of Standards.

On-site inspection and certification of processors, manufacturers and traders is performed by independent Third-Party GOTS accredited Certification Bodies and forms the basis of the GOTS monitoring system. It serves to provide a credible assurance for the integrity of GOTS certified textiles. Find out more on how to get certified.

GOTS has developed its own accreditation system for this approval process as well as for continuous monitoring of the approved Certification Bodies.
