1. Online-Konsultation

Kommentieren und bewerten Sie hier den 1. Entwurf zur Überarbeitung der Mindestkriterien für Textilstandards. Diese erste Konsultationsphase erstreckt sich über vier Wochen.
Die Konsultation ist unterteilt in die Bereiche Umwelt- und Sozialkriterien, in denen Sie jeweils die einzelnen Kriterien direkt kommentieren können. Die Vorlage ist auf Englisch, eine Kommentierung kann jedoch in deutscher und englischer Sprache erfolgen. Unter „DISKUSSION Fehlende Mindestkriterien“ können Sie außerdem neue Vorschläge für Mindestkriterien einbringen.

Eine Auflistung bestehender und neu vorgeschlagener Mindestkriterien finden Sie

Umwelt-Mindestkriterien

Der erste Aufschlag für die Umwelt-Mindestkriterien wurde von MitarbeiterInnen des Öko-Instituts erarbeitet. Zu den sechs bereits existierenden Mindestkriterien wurden drei neue vorgeschlagen.

Criteria question

Does the standard prohibit chemicals listed in the REACH Candidate List as substances of very high concern?

Guidance

[no modifications]

Refers to requirements that restrict or prohibit the use of substances of very high concern according to REACH. Refers to the authentic version of the Candidate List published by ECHA.
In the case of standards for cleaning agents, risk based approaches such as HERA (Human and Environmental Risk As...

Biodegredability of substances (E34) (4 Kommentare)

Criteria question

[no modifications]

Does the standard include criteria on biodegradability of substances?

Guidance

[no modifications]

This aspect can be covered e.g. by recognized test methods (e.g. OECD or REACH methods). E.g. per-/polyfluorinated chemicals have a low biodegradability.

Degree of Intensity (DoI)

1. Claim biodegradability of substances/preparations for some applications

Chemicals harmful to the environment (E38) (2 Kommentare)

Criteria question

[no modifications]

Does the standard include criteria on H statements H400, H410, H411?

Guidance

Refers to chemicals classified as environmental hazards statements according to GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals). The lowest degree of intensity also recognizes approaches assessing the substances in use taking into account aquatic toxicity via the PEC/PNEC ratio....

Chemical residues (E40) (5 Kommentare)

Criteria question

[no modifications]

Does the standard include criteria on testing the final product regarding residues of chemicals?

Guidance

[no modifications]

Refers to testing of residues e.g. heavy metals.

Degree of Intensity (DoI)

[no modifications]

1. Limit values for less or equal than 10 residues are defined

2. Limit values for more than 10 residues...

Wastewater parameters (basic) (E08) (5 Kommentare)

Criteria question

[no modifications]

Does the standard include threshold values on basic wastewater parameters?

Guidance

All wet-processing sites are relevant with regard to criteria for wastewater.

In the case of textiles, the basic parameters are COD, pH, colour removal, and temperature.

In the case of leather, the basic parameters are COD, NH4-N (or TKN), sulphide and chrome (total).

Production of natural fibres (E79) (4 Kommentare)

Criteria question

[no modifications]

Does the standard include criteria on the production of natural fibres?

Guidance

"Organic fibres" means fibres that are certified as organic according to a recognised international or national organic farming standard by a certification body that is IFOAM accredited or internationally recognised (according to ISO 17065). Remark: If standards require other sustainability certification (e.g. BCI, FairTrade, FSC), "equiv...

Production of synthetic fibres (E80) (1 Kommentar)

Criteria question

Does the standard include specific criteria depending on different types of synthetic fibres (including man-made cellulose fibres)?

Guidance

Remark: This criterion is relevant if the standard covers textiles containing more than 30% of synthetic fibres. For other standards, the option "not relevant" has to be chosen.
