STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health.
The amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is an industry-driven movement that aims to monitor and assess workplace standards across the global supply chain. There is growing expectation that companies not only ensure their own businesses are responsible, but that their suppliers are also demonstrating social responsibility.

SMETA is Sedex’s social auditing methodology, enabling businesses to assess their sites and suppliers to understand working conditions in their supply chain.

One of the most common complaints made by the international supplier base is the repetition of Supply Chain Security audits. This common complaint brought multiple industry leaders together in September 2014 to identify a strategy that would help reduce the cost and number of supply chain security audits conducted on global suppliers and factories each year. This collaboration led to the creation of a single agreed-upon security audit and sharing platform that would allow importers to conduct and evaluate shared CTPAT compliant supplier and factory security audits.
The Supplier Compliance Audit Network (SCAN) was developed to facilitate this strategy and establish an audit sharing platform that would help improve audit consistency, lower audit costs, and reduce audit frequency while maintaining confidentiality. Both US Customs and the CTPAT organization have been introduced to SCAN and have acknowledged the potential benefits of the program.
