What is WRAP?

WRAP (The Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) is an international certification program that ensures workers have safe, humane, lawful, and ethical working conditions. Through education and collaboration, WRAP promotes transparent, sustainable, and responsible manufacturing and sourcing practices. It is the world's largest independent certification program focused on the apparel, footwear, and sewn products sectors. WRAP sets them apart from similar social compliance programs because they focus on the ground level of a supply chain. A facility with a WRAP certificate displays a commitment to ethical manufacturing and a focus on its workforce's wellbeing. 

WRAP certifications can only be granted to individual production units. Holding companies, brands, and retailers are not eligible to apply. 
Over 700 buyers, brands, and retailers worldwide accept WRAP certifications. WRAP is the most accepted independent certification in the sewn products industry.

As an accredited auditor company for WRAP, Bureau Veritas can provide extensive knowledge and experience to help you meet the certification requirements.

WRAP target sectors and audit requirements 

WRAP’s apparel auditing process can be applied to serve other high-labor industry sectors outside of apparel. This includes footwear, sewn leather, and travel goods. Potential other industries are home goods, accessories, medical supplies, wearable technology, and upholstery.

WRAP audit process

  1. Submit the Application to WRAP
  2. Complete Pre-Audit Self-Assessment by facilities
  3. Monitoring by BV against the 12 principles.
  4. Monitoring Report evaluated by WRAP
  5. WRAP decides if facilities can be certified.

 

WRAP rating standard and validity frequency

The frequency of audits depends on the certification level. 

There are three levels of WRAP certification – Platinum, Gold, and Silver. 
The certificate issued to a facility is determined by WRAP and depends on the extent to which the audit indicates full compliance and management commitment to the WRAP Principles.
Silver facilities are inspected at least every six months, Gold facilities are inspected at least every year, and Platinum facilities are inspected at least once every two years. All certified facilities are subject to random, unannounced Post-Certification Assessments during their certification period.

 

What are the benefits of having a WRAP certification?

Having a WRAP certification is a valuable asset for any business, as it shows the buyer that you are dedicated to ethical and responsible standards. Your company obeys the laws of your country, treats your workers with respect, and is mindful of the impact your operation has on the environment. The WRAP certificate proves that you are dedicated to upholding social and ethical norms.
