The first stage for GOTS stakeholders to provide feedback on the draft version 6 of the GOTS Standard and Manual has now closed. The next phase gives all stakeholders the chance to review and comment on one another’s submissions.
As a founder member and a GOTS certifier, the Soil Association and Soil Association Certification are stakeholders in the revision process and will be providing feedback on the proposed changes for consideration by the GOTS Standards Committee and Advisory Council (members of our Standards Team have seats on both of these committees).
We invite licensees’ to feedback on the comments and suggestions that stakeholders have made.

GOTS’ aim with the consultation is to ensure that the Standards and Manual “set strict and binding requirements for ecological and social parameters while acknowledging the need for practicability in industrial production of a wide range of products”.
