To further enhance the environmental compliance status of our product ranges we are now in the process of independent certification to Oeko-Tex® ECO Passport with Hohenstein Institute.
This will enable customers to confidentially know that all the Avocet products supplied will meet the compliance demands of the leading High Street brands and Government Agencies alike.
You can find all the products currently certified here:-
Whilst not all products are currently certified, through consistent monitoring and auditing of the our supply chain we are able to offer the following statement :-
This textile labelling scheme is now widely recognised as one of the leading symbols of environmental care. With this in mind we have compiled a list of our products that when applied under the recommended conditions make it possible for the textile article to meet the criteria for Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Certification. Please contact your local Avocet representative for confirmation of compliance details for the products you purchase.
The following limitations should always be observed when applying for this standard:-
The supplied dyestuffs are suitable for the dyeing of textiles in compliance with EU Directives 2002/61/EC and 2004/21/EC at the highest dyestuff concentrations which may reasonably be used in practice (inc. micro-fibres).
The requirement on cleavable arylamines of the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 (Annexes 4&5) is met even at the highest dyestuff concentrations which may reasonably be used in practice (inc. micro fibres).
The dyestuffs do not split off into any of the 24 carcinogenic aromatic amines under the reductive conditions specified in EN 14362-1:2003 or EN 14362-2:2003.
In addition they do not contain any of the substances which appear on either the UK Red List or the European Union Priority Candidate List.
It must be appreciated that all dyes contain traces of impurities including heavy metals but the quantities are very small and are within the ETAD limits.
