Our Textile Certifications Programs

Our Textile Verifications Programs

How to get started

Request a textile certification or verification

The first step is to contact us at textileamericas@controlunion.com, where we will be able to set up a call to directly discuss the specific nature of your certification needs. You can also click the following link Control Union Certifications - Textile Application Form to begin the application process for GOTS, GRS, OCS, RCS, CCS. For the RWS, RDS, RAS and RMS please contact us, and we can send you a separate application form to be filled and returned to us.

The verification programs will include an application process.

Receive the offer letter

Once we have your application(s), we will provide you with an offer letter that will indicate the price and scope of your certification.

Accept and get your audit plan

Upon accepting and signing, we will contact you about setting up dates for your audit. Once an auditor is assigned to your audit, an agenda and audit plan will be sent to prepare for your audit. At the close of your audit, the auditor will indicate if any non-compliances have been found and agree to the deadlines of the corrective actions.

Audit review

Your audit results will be reviewed by a secondary person, called the certifier, who ultimately decides whether certification will be granted. If you had corrective actions to approach, these need to be sent in for the review process to begin.

Get your Certification / Get your attestation or score that has been reported.

If the results have been approved, you will be contacted to receive your certification. If the results were not satisfactory, you will need to submit your corrective actions within the agreed time frame or pause your certification until such time as you are ready.

If results are not satisfactory, you will be required to wait a period of time to begin the process again.
