The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) is one of the strictest standards in the area of animal welfare and the traceability of down. It completely excludes live plucking and force-feeding.

Under this standard, inspections are made annually and partly unannounced. Every batch of down is certified. Every facility producing RDS down is audited. Firms can also require parent farms to be covered by an optional module. Inspections are also made of washing facilities, storage, and processing locations in order to ensure traceability all the way to the final product.

The RDS is currently implemented by over 140 brands in the outdoor, fashion and sport retail industry.
