Non-Compliance: Revocation of the Cotton made in Africa Certificate

Should the exclusion criteria of Cotton made in Africa not be observed, or should less than 50 percent of the sustainability criteria in the traffic light system be classified as green or yellow, or should two consecutive verifications show no improvement in at least one sustainability criterion, the relevant cotton company’s certificate will be revoked. This means that the cotton company is no longer permitted to trade in any CmiA-certified cotton.
