Oeko-Tex has released new regulations for its certifications, product labels, and services in 2019. The goal of Oeko-Tex is to reinforce consumer protection and sustainability along the value creation chain for textiles and leather. The existing guidelines for the Oeko-Tex product portfolio have thus been amended again for the start of the year. The new regulations will come into effect after a three-month transition period on April 1, 2019, according to a report by the company.
