The GRS Certificate (Global Recycle Standard) covers the processing, production, packaging, labeling and distribution of all products containing recyclable materials. It has been translated into our language as the Global Recycling Standard. It was mainly developed by Control Union in 2008 and ownership passed to Textile Exchange on 1 January 2011. The GRS is an international voluntary product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled ingredients, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restraints.


GRS reduces or eliminates damage the manufacture of recycled materials. Its goal is to define requirements to ensure correct ingredient demands and good working conditions and to minimize harmful environmental and chemical effects. These requirements cover companies engaged in ginning, spinning, weaving, knitting, dyeing and printing and sewing businesses in more than 50 countries.


In summary, the objectives of the GRS can be listed as follows;
Aligning definitions in multiple applications,
Monitoring and monitoring of recycled input materials,
Informed decisions to customers (both brands and consumers),
To reduce the harmful effects of production on people and the environment,
To promote innovation in addressing quality issues in the use of Recyclables.

The standard can be applied to companies that manufacture or trade in the final or intermediate products of recycled products. It covers all products containing at least 20% recycled materials. The field of application is not limited to textile products, but is very wide, especially for products such as paper, packaging, glass and plastic. The standard is designed to meet the needs of companies that want to validate their recycled content and responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in their production.
