The ISO 14000 family addresses various aspects of environmental management. ISO 14001:2004 deals with environmental management systems (EMS). An EMS meeting the requirements of ISO 14001:2004 is a management tool enabling an organization of any size or type to:
OHSAS 18001 is the latest certification specification for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. It is based on already published criteria such as BS 8800 and the Management Regulations 1992. OHSAS 18001 is an audit/certification specification, not a legislative requirement or a guide to implementation.
OHSAS 18001 is part of OHSAS 18000, the generic name given to a family of international standards developed to provide a framework around which an occupational health and safety management system can effectively be implemented.

REACH is a new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances.
REACH aims at improving the protection of human health and the environment through better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. The REACH Regulation gives greater responsibility to industries to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on the substances.

The textile industry is characterized by a form of cooperation in which each production stage from raw material to finished textile product is often located in a different place in the world. This extremely fragmented structure is reflected in the complex supply relationships between all companies involved throughout the textile processing chain. On top of this, different environmental regulations apply in the individual countries involved in textile production.
This is where the concept of the OEKO-TEX® Standards apply: Aim of the criteria catalogue is to level out global differences regarding assessment of possible harmful substances in textiles. The OEKO-TEX® system can identify and eliminate potential sources of problematic substances at each processing stage. Testing becomes necessary whenever a textile product is recomposed or a chemical change is made to its material.
The use of Dyes from Jay Chemicals, help our clients meet OEKO-TEX® certification requirements for their textile products.
