WRAPWorldwide Responsible Accredited Production

About WRAP

Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) is an independent, objective, non-profit team of global social compliance experts dedicated to promoting safe, lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing around the world through certification and education. WRAP is headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, USA, and has branch offices in Hong Kong and Bangladesh and additional representatives in India and Southeast Asia (Thailand & Vietnam).

Our primary activity is our Certification Program, which is the largest independent facility certification program in the world mainly focused on the apparel, footwear, and sewn products sectors. We issue three levels of certification that are valid for six months to two years based on a facility's compliance with WRAP's 12 Principles. These principles are based on the rule of law within each individual country and include the spirit or language of the relevant conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO).

WRAP also administers a comprehensive training program throughout the world and is recognized as an accredited training organization by the International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA). All of our monitoring partners must undergo our comprehensive Lead Auditor Training program and follow-up with regular refresher courses. We also offer an Internal Auditor Course which teaches factory managers and workers how to make their facilities compliant with our 12 Principles. Additionally, WRAP has been a pioneer in Factory Fire Safety Training, offering the course in Bangladesh, Pakistan, China, India, and Southeast Asia.

    Social compliance is no
    longer a secondary concern
    for apparel buyers and
    brands. They are serious
    about wanting to know that
    the facilities supplying them
    care about social
    responsibility. Through our
    Certification and Training
    programs, WRAP helps
    facilities convey to
    potential customers their
    commitment to responsible
    business practices.

    WRAP's goal is to ensure that
    manufacturing facilities operate
    in a safe, responsible, and
    ethical way. Through our 12
    Principles, we promote lawful,
    humane manufacturing in
    facilities throughout the world
    via our Certification and
    Training programs. What sets
    us apart from other similar
    programs is that we focus on
    the "ground level" of a supply
    chain and we only certify
    individual production units
    rather than ownership groups
    or whole companies.
