News from the IMO Textile Department


Textile Inspection and Certification by IMO

Since 1992, IMO has been acting as a reliable, international inspection and certification organization for textiles. Our certificates stand for the greatest ecological quality.
The International Association Natural Textile Industry (IVN) has entrusted IMO and the testing lab eco-Umweltinstitut exclusively with quality assurance. Furthermore, IMO is entitled to perform ecological quality assurance on basis of the standards of the Organic Trade Association (OTA), Demeter International, on behalf of the Soil Association and others.
IMO was significantly involved in developing the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and was officially approved as the first certification body at all to offer certification according to this world-wide accepted standard for ecological textiles.
Our many years of experience in ecological and social quality assurance in textile production are also available for your company's special criteria.
