STUTTGART – The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has won a legal judgement in an appeal case against a company that printed blank GOTS certified organic cotton t-shirts and then sold them afterwards as GOTS certified end products – despite not been certified as a GOTS printer.

“This judgement is groundbreaking,” claimed Claudia Kersten, GOTS Managing Director.

GOTS has revealed that the Higher Regional Court in Stuttgart passed the judgement on 18 February 2019 in favour of GOTS, which says will have “far-reaching consequences for any advertising using the GOTS logo and/or name.”
