The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world's leading standard for processing textiles made from organically produced natural fibers. It defines environmental requirements along the entire textile production chain at a high level and at the same time demands compliance with social criteria. On-site inspections and the certification of pre-press companies, manufacturers and dealers by independent, specially accredited testing institutes form the basis of the GOTS control system. This guarantees comprehensive safety for GOTS certified textiles. Once we have successfully completed the certification, we have a license that entitles us to participate in the GOTS program. The certification also applies to our printing company. We print the GOTS bags according to the GOTS standard. This entitles you to use the standard as well as the use of the GOTS logo on the corresponding certified products.
In August 2012, Macma successfully achieved ISO9001 ISO certification. (Recertification 2023)
As part of the certification, the internal processes were examined and evaluated.
The decisive factor for certification is compliance with basic criteria that are the basis for a functioning and successful company. Our customers can benefit from our certified corporate structure as it offers efficient processes for processing orders. We always strive to improve and further expand the smooth processes within the processes in order to constantly increase customer satisfaction.
We are supported in this by DEKRA Consulting GmbH, which also carries out regular audits in our company.
We take responsibility, even when selecting our suppliers. Therefore, we take great importance to compliance with social standards in the production of our products and committed us to comply with the BSCI Code of Conduct. The BSCI Code of Conduct is based on international conventions such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the guidelines of children's rights and Entrepreneurial Action, the United Nations 'Economic and Human Rights' guidelines, the OECD Guidelines and the UN Global Compact and the Conventions and Recommendations International Labour Organization (ILO), which are relevant to improving Working conditions in the supply chain.
In concrete terms, this means that for the first filling of sales packaging with goods, only cartons or other forms of packaging licensed in advance in a dual system may be used. Conversely, the dual systems ensure the professional collection, sorting and recycling of the packaging placed on the market and ultimately disposed of by the private final consumer.
The use of the WEEE number „DE 72005675“, which you can find on every electrical item or its packing, is also liable to pay the costs. The fees are paid to the responsible office “Foundation for Old Electrical Appliances Register”.
With the additional registration of our goods at the eds-r GmbH/Rücknahmesystem the circuit is closed again and thus a professional disposal guaranteed. This enables your customers to hand the electronic scrap over to various collection stations or other designated facilities.
Disposal costs for batteries which you have to pay for electronic items are paid over to the foundation GRS under the registration number 9901254. Thus the customer is assured when buying items, that he can give back the batteries at any dealer, who also deals with batteries.
The European Community has acknowledged Macma the 16th of December 2011 as Authorised Economic Operator. This certification is only awarded to specially reliable and trustworthy companies. The AEO certification (AEO – Authorised Economic Operator) implicates numerous simplifications in Customs Law, primarily concerning customs controls.
Furthermore MACMA also confirms that all electrical products which are subject to the EU law 2002/95/EC, are produced suitable to ROHS 2 and correspond to all legal obligations. Our electrical products, which are subject to this regulation, are labelled with the following symbol on the item or the packing:
“Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.”
The resulting paper cardboard boxes are registered at the RESY Organisation for Valuable Material Regulation and are marked with the RESY symbol at the large and small packing. The identification number 10856 confirms MACMA oHG as registered member. Thus all our packing is registered at the RESY Disposal System and guarantees an environmental-friendly disposal.
