The Content Claim Standard is applicable to organizations who would like to exhibit the legitimacy and validity of the content of the material used to make products. The organization may be the manufacturer, buyer, or seller of the product. The standard offers veri fi cation by third-party organization for the content claim of the product. It also pays attention to the fl ow of materials or goods inside the production facility and also goods purchased from other sources. The standard includes processes such as manufacturing, storage, handling, and shipping. The CCS should be used in cases where a claim cannot be backed up by another standard or recognized testing method, or when other veri fi cation methods are not in place (internal track and track systems, genetic markers, etc.). 6.2 OCS Organic Content Standard Textile Exchange is the publisher of the Organic Content Claim (OCS). This standard acts as a replacement for the OE 100 and OE blended standards from 19 may 2013. ECOCERT purposes the certi fi cation of textiles made with organic grown materials according to the Organic Content Standard. The objective of this standard is to assure the traceability and reliability of the raw materials during all the manufacturing stages (Figs. 17 and 18 ). Fig. 16 CCS label. Source Fig. 17 OCS label.

Two different labels are offered by the standard according to the composition. 1. OCS 100 logo is used for only product that contains 95 % or more organic material. 2. OCS blended is used for products that contain 5 % minimum of organic material blended with conventional or synthetic raw materials. 6.3 RDS Responsible Down Standard The textile industry has become more and more aware of the challenges in sourcing. Particularly, sourcing is complex for animal products such as feather and down, wool, angora, cashmere, and leather. To make the sourcing easier and more sus- tainable, the Responsible Down Standard (RDS) was developed and it serves to be a primary standard for animal welfare in down and feather products. With the global expertise of Control Union, services are offered for all animal products integrated in textiles (Fig. 19 ). The standard is owned and managed by Textile Exchange. The RDS has been developed by Control Union, The North Face, and Textile Exchange through a wide stakeholder review process, which involved among others worldwide down supply chain members and major animal welfare organizations. The standard development process included pilot audits at all levels of a typical down supply chain and therefore resulted in a scalable standard enabling worldwide applicability by any type of operation (farm, slaughterhouse, processor, trader, collector, garment manufacturer, etc.) in the down supply chain.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
