Organic Content Standard 100 & Organic Content Standard Blended
OCS covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of a product that contains at least 5% certified ‘organic’ materials.

In August 2006, Sarena became one of the first dyeing plants to acquire ISO 17025 for its in-house testing laboratory. Because our major line of business is work wear and our clients depend on us to test the fabric thoroughly for performance, we acquired this certification in order to standardize our laboratory facilities. This certification requires affirmative audit results in the following areas:
Whether the general lab-facilities comply with international standards in terms of atmosphere, temperature and humidity preconditions and the like
Whether the lab-personnel are knowledge, skilled and experienced in carrying out testing protocols successfully in accordance with the letter and spirit of various international testing systems (such as ISO, AATCC etc)
Whether the equipment being used is standardized, calibrated and otherwise in good working order
Whether documentation and record-keeping procedures have been defined and implemented for all lab-processes
Whether tests are in reality being performed in accordance with the letter and spirit prescribed in the testing manual
The certification is a requirement for other renonwed international testing companies such as SGS. However Sarena is using its accreditation strictly for in-house testing as opposed to commercial testing. (Click here for certificate)
