The European organic sector is flourishing. Businesses are growing and so is the number of requests for auditing and certification. There is, however, a downside as the success of organic also attracts dubious companies keen on getting a piece of the pie. Hence, the relevance of having an adequate organic certification system has grown over the years. Likewise, Control Union Certifications B.V. (CUC) has grown in many different countries, whilst taking responsibility for the certificates it issues.
Control Union, a founding member of Textile Exchange, has been a strong promoter of the third-party assessment system, namely that policy making, certification and accreditation are organized by different parties. It was for this reason that in 2011 Control Union gifted to Textile Exchange the Global Recycled Standard (GRS) and Recycled Content Standard (RCS) which now serve over 1,875 sites.
