Event Description

6PM AT RICHMIX, LONDON E1

Certification, standards and labelling for fashion products is an increasingly complex topic. In today’ s climate of conscious consumers and probing press and buyers, high sustainability standards and robust certification systems are essential.

This seminar looks in depth at the range of certification and standards options available for fashion businesses. The seminar will approach the issues from a practitioner’s perspective, assessing different models of production and sizes of business; the most appropriate certification; labelling and standard setting options; and how these can be built into business models.

Alongside this seminar, representatives from certification, labelling, and standard setting bodies will be invited to exhibit and distribute information about the options available.
