When a mattress manufacturer uses organic latex inside their mattresses, they receive a transaction certificate. Each piece of organic latex they purchased from the GOLS Certified factory that made the Dunlop latex issues the certificate as proof that the latex has been certified. If a manufacturer can not supply a certificate from GOLS with their name on it in the form of a transaction certificate, then more than likely it is not certified organic latex. This is the whole purpose of certified organic. IT is certified so we can follow the trail from the growing of the tree, to the collection of the milk, to the vulcanization process and curing of the latex, all the way to how it is packaged. Each step has a paper trail. This trail is then offered to the manufacturer and is listed in the control union web site for verification by anyone who wishes to know. This is how we ensure that the organic latex we are using inside our mattresses truly is organic.
The Transaction Certificate Is Required
Any company who is manufacturing with GOLS certified organic latex, or using the organic latex milk must obtain a transaction certificate for each piece of GOLS organic latex or quantity milk they use. Transaction certificate must be used when ownership of organic raw material, partly finished products and/ or finished products changes or transferring between companies. Transaction certificates for organic raw material is certified as per EU Standards when the raw material. This may also refer to an Import certificate or Certificate of inspection.
