What qualifications do I need to meet in order to make a Product-Specific Claim?
The qualifications for making a Product-Specific Claim are:
- Final Product Certification
Textile Exchange Standards require all sites to be certified through to the seller in the last business-to-business transaction. Usually the last stage to be certified is the garment manufacturer or the brand.
- Minimum Content
The product must meet the minimum content percentages for each standard in order to be eligible for a product-specific claim (as outlined in the relevant Logo Use & Claims Guide).
- Claim Approval
All claims/label artwork must be approved by the Certification Body you or your direct supplier are working with for certification; they will be checking to make sure you have followed the specifications in the Logo Use & Claims Guide relevant to the standard you are claiming.
