Look for Certification Bodies that are currently approved to certify entities of the textile supply chain and their products according to GOTS. All listed Certification Bodies can offer their GOTS certification services in their approved scopes worldwide. Approval for certification is provided for 4 different scopes by GOTS:
- Certification of mechanical textile processing and manufacturing operations and their products (scope 1)
- Certification of wet processing and finishing operations and their products (scope 2)
- Certification of trading operations and related products (scope 3)
- Approval of textile auxiliary agents (chemical inputs) on positive lists (scope 4)
Search for the respective scope and contact details of the Certification Body and local office representatives that may provide information with regard to GOTS certification are also stated.
Note that not all offices have the services of a locally-available GOTS auditor/inspector. Prospective GOTS entities are encouraged to obtain more information by contacting the certifiers.
GOTS also defined a Policy for Change or Migration of Certification Body, in case Certified Entities wish to change their Certifier.
