The Content Claim Standard (CCS) is the chain of custody requirements for all Textile Exchange standards. The standard verifies the presence and amount of a given raw material in a final product. It provides a strong chain of custody system from the source to the final product and is certified by an accredited third-party certification body. It allows for transparent, consistent, and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of material content claims on products. The CCS is the backbone of Textile Exchange standards. Any changes in the final Content Claim Standard 3.0 will be applied to all Textile Exchange standards.
Textile Exchange is now seeking open feedback on the current version of the Content Claim Standard 2.0 as part of a comprehensive CCS revision. Your feedback will help to inform our revision of the CCS this year. We will research your issues submitted during the Open Feedback Period and, in collaboration with the International Working Group, will be creating a Draft CCS 3.0 that will also be released for public comment later this year.
The Open Feedback Period begins on April 30, 2020 and closes on May 30, 2020.
You can share your feedback in two ways:
- You can submit your feedback via this online feedback form; or
- You can download and complete this offline feedback form in Excel and email it back to Standards@TextileExchange.org.
All open feedback is due no later than May 30, 2020.
