Textile Exchange seeks to create and maintain the standards using an open and engaged stakeholder process. Our Standard Setting Principles and Procedures document outlines how this process will work for the development of new standards and the revision of existing standards. The current version is a draft and will be finalized later this year. If you have any comments on the document, please send them to

TE Standards

The Textile Exchange standards have been developed through a multi-stakeholder approach to support the integrity of product claims by providing verification from an independent third-party. We continue to work to ensure the standards continue to meet the needs of a growing and changing industry.
