Introduction to WRAP Certification

WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) is a social compliance certification program established by the Global Apparel Production Social Responsibility Organization. Its goal is to improve human rights conditions in garment manufacturing enterprises worldwide. Currently, WRAP is the largest social compliance certification organization in the apparel industry, recognized by over 100 international brands. Foreign buyers can find factories on the WRAP website (about 2,200 factories worldwide, including about 800 in China). Obtaining WRAP certification allows factories to get the WRAP certificate, which is essential for exporting to overseas markets. WRAP audits cover social responsibility and anti-terrorism systems, with high standards and strong general applicability.

Audit Types

Initial audits, follow-up audits, and annual audits are all semi-announced, with only the timeframe (usually about four weeks) given for the surprise audit. Only document reviews are notified.

Certification Process

  1. Submit the application form and pay the fee to WRAP. WRAP provides a self-assessment and inspection manual.
  2. Select an accredited audit firm for the assessment. The firm conducts an on-site evaluation and submits a summary of results to WRAP.
  3. WRAP determines if the factory meets the standards based on the audit report and issues the certificate to qualified factories.
