MCL Global and the European Outdoor Group have launched a website on textile regulations and standards. The content on the website is highly analytical and discusses subjects like the full range of third party voluntary textile standards, mandatory regulations, management standards, the key frameworks that impact sustainability and social compliance in the supply chain.
Written and designed by industry experts and leading textile journalists the website allows the textile supply chain to access key information on over 70 voluntary and mandatory global social, environmental textile standards and legal requirements. It combines the best elements of MCL Global’s well-known eco-textile labeling guide and EOG’s online SIGNS tool. This collaborative work is now accessible to the textile, sports and outdoor industry at large.
The original SIGNS online platform was created back in 2011 by EOG members with the intent of closing an information and knowledge gap that existed in the industry.
In addition, MCL Global will publish a snapshot of the on-line content, which will also be available to subscribers in the form of an 84 page printed booklet. The most impressive aspect of the online resource is that all information is available at one place and is completely searchable by different criteria. It keeps an eye on changes and updates them within 24 hours.
