ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® is an independent testing and certification system for chemicals, colourants and auxiliaries used to manufacture textiles.

A three-stage verification process analyses whether the chemical products and each individual ingredient meet specific requirements with regard to sustainability, safety and compliance with statutory regulations.

  • Stage 1:
    Restricted Substance List (RSL) and Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (MRSL) screening
  • Stage 2:
    Analytical verification performed in an OEKO-TEX® member institute laboratory
  • Stage 3 (optional):
    Verification of product stewardship measures regarding the working conditions and environmental management (assessment and On-site visit).

Products passing the requirements of the ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® certification and will be entered into the OEKO-TEX® buying guide which is the OEKO-TEX® central sourcing platform of pre-certified articles and materials.
