The First Page of High Fashion (China) GRS Certficate
The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) was originally developed by Control Union Certifications at the request of the textile industry. In 2008, it announced the GRS version 1.1 and carried out pilot certification with various international brands. The ownership of GRS was passed to the Textile Exchange on 1 January, 2011 to ensure there is no conflict of interest. On 1 Jul, 2017, GRS version 4.0 was released and took effect. GRS not only regulates the source of raw materials, but also monitors product recycling/recycled contents, chain of custody control, social responsibility, environment, health and safety, wastewater treatment, and chemical use in the production process. Only the enterprises that comply with these standards can be awarded the certificate.
As the public awareness on environment increases, major international brands continue to pay more attention to products like apparel, bags, shoes and accessories made from recycled and reused regenerated fibres. These “green” products are widely favoured by consumers in the European and American markets. High Fashion (China) began to plan various sustainable development certifications for the company in 2019, and GRS was also listed as one of our certification projects in 2020. Due to the impact of the pandemic, the time of certification was delayed for several months. After 3 months of document and on-site preparations, we eventually successfully obtained the certificate before the end of 2020. This GRS certification covers knitting, manufacturing, trading, dyeing, finishing, printing and extrusion. That is to say, as long as the raw materials provided by the supplier hold the GRS certificate, the woven garments and trim packaging bags can use GRS labels, and transaction certificates (TC) can be issued to customers.
