What is the governance framework for Trackit?
As the standard owner, we determine the purposes for which and the means by which the certification data is processed. Certification bodies are licensed by us to audit and carry out the certification process with certified companies.
For dTrackit, the data is first processed in certification bodies’ systems and then passed to our system, dTrackit. For eTrackit, the data is processed in eTrackit, a shared service system that we contracted TextileGenesis, a service provider, to operate. As eTrackit operates on a shared service system, certified companies will need to directly contract with Textile Exchange and TextileGenesis to use eTrackit services. Both dTrackit and eTrackit data is or will be stored in our Shared Measurement System (SMS).
As we evolve our standard systems, we will be changing our licensing model.
