The OEKO-TEX® standards are regularly updated to stay ahead of global regulations, incorporate new scientific health data and the latest production methods. Every January, OEKO-TEX® publishes annual updates to the standards as well as the test criteria and limit values - in line with consistent consumer protection and sustainable textiles and leather.

Following a 3-month transition period, annual updates go into effect April 1.
