Global Certification

No.1 of certification consulting performance in Korea, the consulting institution registered at the MSS




The Oeko-Tex standard is the voluntary certification standard possibly evaluating the potential harmful property of a textile product. It was introduced by the public’s demand on the textile product unharmful to the human body in the beginning of 1990s.
The ÖsterreichTextilInstitut (ÖTI) and the Hohenstain Research Institute of Germany developed the Oeko-Tex standard on the basis of the existing test standard. Before Oeko-Tex was generated, there had been no product label enabling a consumer to know about the physical effect of a textile or no unified safety standard enabling the textile industry to actually evaluate the potential harmful ingredient of a textile.
