MESSAGE FROM WRAP WITH REGARDS TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Who is WRAP?
Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, USA, with regional offices in Hong Kong, SAR, and Dhaka, Bangladesh, full-time staff in India, Indonesia, Southeast Asia (Thailand and Vietnam) and Europe, and for Latin America, 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.
What does WRAP do?
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 from 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.
