CU India ISO/IEC 17065, GOTS and TE accreditation suspended and suspension recommended for COR.

On March 3, 2023, IOAS suspended the accreditation of CU India for ISO/IEC 17065 (all scopes), GOTS (all scopes) and Textile Exchange (all scopes) and recommended suspension under COR for CAN/CGSB-32.312 (all categories) and grower group certification, following an unsuccessful appeal.

CU India has been invited to take corrective actions to enable the suspensions to be lifted.  While the suspensions are in effect, they are not permitted to accept new applications, no certificates may be issued to new applications that are in progress, and no extensions of scope may be issued to existing operators.

Any operations, certification bodies and authorities that rely on this accreditation are asked to take note.
