An International Working Group (IWG) of certification bodies has led the revision of the standard. The GRS IWG members are: Control Union, ICEA, IMO, Intertek, and SCS Global Services.
The GRS is intended for companies that are making and/or selling products with recycled content. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, and labeling. Developed with the textile industry in mind, the GRS may also be applied to products from any industry.
Are you looking for a supplier certified to the OE standards? We have recently updated our format to include a list of available products. Please note that this information is not available for all companies.
