Content Claim Standard (CCS)

What it is about

The CCS provides companies with a tool to verify the content of specific input materials. Each organisation along the supply chain is checked by an independent third-party. Any type of input material may be claimed. The CCS is the foundation for all of Textile Exchanges's chain of custody standards.

Focus of CCS

The CCS verifies the presence and amount of a given material in a final product. It tracks the flow of a material from the source to the final product and is certified by an accredited third party. It allows for transparent, consistent and comprehensive independent evaluation and verification of material content claims on products.

CCS can be used as a business-to-business tool. On one hand it gives companies the means to ensure that they are selling quality products and getting what they pay for. It also serves as the foundation for content claim standards that are developed around specific raw materials. 

The CCS cannot be used as a consumer-facing logo. This Standard does not cover the certification of the input material itself – that will be verified independently of the production process certification. It also does not address other inputs, environmental aspects of processing (such as energy, water or chemical use), any social issues or legal compliance. (ref: www.textileexchange.org)

Control Union is a leading certification body, at the moment having certified the majority of all certified facilities in more than 50 countries to e.g. OCS and GRS.
