A Cut Above the Rest
The TÜV SÜD TexCheck Mark scheme enables retailers and manufacturers to demonstrate their commitment to safety for humans and the environment concerning the use of hazardous chemicals in the production of textile products.
The Mark is awarded on completion of a comprehensive testing and factory inspection program, which includes certain elements of social accountability such as compliance to labour laws, occupational safety and workers' entitlement. The Mark is designed to address the restriction of hazardous substances as stipulated by the US CPSIA and EU REACH regulations as well as RSLs (Restriction Substance List) of major retailers. The test parameter includes the verification of fibre composition.
Use of the TÜV SÜD TexCheck Mark is supported by random tests on products selected by our inspectors direct from the factory floor and annual factory inspections.
