Product Classes OEKO-TEX ® Standard 100 employs different test methods for the assessment of harmful substances, and these test methods are chosen based on the end use of the textile. Based on the human ecological requirements, the textile product that comes into close contact with the skin is given more importance. According to this standard, the tested textile products are classi fi ed into four different product classes as follows (Fig. 10 ). Certi fi cation The textile product to be certi fi ed as per OEKO-TEX ® Standard 100 has to be tested for harmful substances, and certi fi cation will be done only upon compliance with the required criteria. The testing has to include all the components or materials of the fi nal product which includes fabric, sewing threads, linings, prints, and also non-textile accessories such as buttons, zip fasteners, and rivets.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
