Textile Exchange releases “Global Recycled Standard, V3” August 2014

August 28, 2014

Textile Exchange has released a new version of the Global Recycled Standard which includes several significant changes.

The input verification of reclaimed material prior to recycling, established by the Recycled Claim Standard, is now an integral part of the standard.

The revision of the standard also includes stronger social and environmental requirements that apply to the entire certified facility. Perhaps the most significant change is the addition of chemical requirements. GRS v3 includes restrictions on chemicals used in the production of GRS products. The restrictions are based on the assignment of hazard codes, rather than testing against an RSL.

The Standard, related documents, and additional information are available at:
