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

Following a transition period, all new regulations go into effect April 1. Overviews of the most important changes are summarized below.
