Working together on circularity

Are there textiles in your product?

  • Help safeguard the limited resources of our planet from depletion.
  • Help find solutions to the mountains of textile waste.
  • Anticipate the European transition from a linear to a circular economy.
  • Be prepared for new Belgian and European legislation on the take-back obligation or acceptance obligation or EPR.


Don’t forget to consider PPE’s also.

Personal protective equipment may also contain textiles and therefore has to conform to the legislation on the take-back obligation or acceptance obligation or EPR.

Inter alia, this legislation means that producers, sellers or importers of textiles:

  • Must bear the full cost of the life cycle of their product.
  • Must meet the targets set out in the EPR for selective collection, reuse and recycling.
  • That the textile products must be produced in accordance with the rules of Design for recycling (DforR) and Design for circularity (RforC).
  • Must specify the volume of textiles that is put on the market in Belgium.
  • Must specify the quantity of ‘end-of-life’ professional textiles which is selectively collected and how this is processed (reuse, recycling, incineration).
  • Must make available the necessary financial resources to meet these targets.

What does Circletex do?

Circletex vzw negotiates within the framework of textile circularity with, among other things, authorities to find pragmatically workable circular targets. This takes place based on reliable data, experience and developments from all the relevant areas.
