Textile Exchange has announced the release of Recycled Claim Standard 2.0 (RCS) and Global Recycled Standard 4.0 (GRS), two revised versions of these standards. The RCS and GRS standards provide verification of recycled materials and then track the material up until the final product. A key change in both standards is the introduction of the Reclaimed Materials Supplier Agreement, a document that is to provide more visibility to the suppliers of reclaimed materials, as guidelines have been introduced for added clarity and consistency of recycling claims. The revised GRS also features the adoption of ZDHC's Manufacturing Restricted Substance List v1.1 (MRSL), which will replace GRS's previous Prohibited Substance List. The various changes to the two standards can be read online at www.TextileExchange.org/Integrity. The companies that are currently certified to one of these standards are required to comply with the new versions by July 1, 2018. Lists of the currently certified companies, approved certification bodies and related documents are available on the Textile Exchange's website at www.TextileExchange.org/Integrity. In 2016, the number of units certified to the RCS recorded a jump of nearly 200 percent, from 78 units in 2015 to 220. The number of units certified to the GRS grew by more than 60 percent, from 595 in 2015 to 961 in 2016.
