OEKO-TEX: No Certification Fee for Face Masks

With immediate effect, the OEKO-TEX Association is waiving the license fee for STANDARD 100 certification of mouth and nose masks.

“We need to stay together in this extraordinary situation: now and for our future,” said OEKO-TEX general secretary Georg Dieners. “The crisis challenges many manufacturers who are confronted with a logistically difficult task.”

This industry support follows the process modifications for certificate renewals during the Corona pandemic. “This adjustment offers an important service for producers of face masks while ensuring continued sustainability and public safety from harmful substances during the corona crisis,” said the organization.
