The Organic Content Standard (OCS) is promoted internationally by the Textile Exchange , provides for the release of an environmental declaration verified by a third party that :
-validates the content of natural fibers from organic agriculture in textile products (both intermediate and finished);
-guarantees traceability along the entire production chain of raw materials, intermediate products and finished products.
All textile products that are composed of at least 5% of certified organic natural fibers can be certified according to the OCS standard . The following aspects do not fall within the scope of OCS , therefore they are not subject to verification :
-Quality requirements of the material
-Safety features of the material
-Environmental performance and impacts associated with production processes
-Social criteria .
The OCS standard applies to all textile manufacturing processes starting from gymnastics, followed by spinning, weaving and all subsequent ennobling processes.
