MyStep by OEKO-TEX® is a database for brands, retailers, manufacturers and suppliers that wish to efficiently manage their supply chain with clarity on sustainability issues, regardless of whether they have OEKO-TEX® certification.

Every MySTeP database user has a custom display relating to their supply chain. Each supplier chooses the scope of the data that is available to purchasers and whether these purchasers are able to forward selected data to their customers. 

Users can release the following data for display:

  • The type of facility (e.g. a spinning mill, weaving mill, finisher or manufacturer of ready-made clothing)
  • Country or detailed address
  • Current STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification and expiration date
  • The product description on the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificate
  • Sustainability achievements based on the STeP by OEKO-TEX® points system 
  • Details of STeP by OEKO-TEX® test reports

Database users decide which data is released. OEKO-TEX® deploys the latest standards of technology to protect data. You can find more information about data protection and the release of data in the conditions of use when you apply.

MySTeP dashboard users can set specific targets for their supply chain (for instance, for water consumption, wastewater limit values or CO2 emissions) and then compare performance with these targets.
