Textile Exchange follows the ISEAL Codes of Good Practice for standard-setting bodies to ensure we have a robust and transparent processes for our standards.
Our highest priorities are to include all parties that may be affected by the standard, and to create a tool that balances strict requirements with realistic and auditable criteria. The development of all Textile Exchange standards is done through an international working group (IWG), representing the full spectrum of interested parties, including animal welfare groups, brands, farmers, supply chain members, industry associations, as well as brands and retailers.
The document ASR-102 Textile Exchange Standard Setting Procedures defines the process for developing and revising standards. An International Working Group (IWG), which is responsible for decision making in the standards development process, is formed with the defined terms of reference and representatives from the following sectors:
|wdt_ID||Standard||Current Version||Schedule of Revision/Development|
|wdt_ID||Document||Schedule of Revisions and Development||Current Version/Date|
