WRAP unveils 12 production principles on ethical manufacturing

Dec '08
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) reaffirms its dedication to lawful, ethical and humane manufacturing through the implementation of its 12 Production Principles, which are founded upon the principals included in the UDHR.

Adopted on December 10, 1948 by the United Nations' General Assembly, the Declaration is a seminal document in the annals of human history. As the first document manifesting international recognition that all human beings have certain fundamental rights and freedoms, it has served as the foundation for many international treaties and national laws to protect and promote political, civil, economic, and social rights.

It has also served as a foundation and guide for WRAP. During WRAP's formative stages, prior to its incorporation in January 2000, the task force charged with developing the WRAP Production Principles drew upon the tenets of the UDHR in setting up the guidelines for the manufacturing industry to ensure socially responsible production.

“With too many unresolved political and military conflicts, and continuing terror attacks on innocent citizens, this anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of this critical document and the rights enumerated within it,” WRAP's President and CEO Steve Jesseph said.

“WRAP remains fully committed to ensuring that the spirit The Declaration remains at the forefront of our efforts in all labor-intensive consumer products manufacturing sectors around the world.”

WRAP's endeavor to ensure lawful, ethical, and humane work conditions has made encouraging progress in the past 8 years. Carrying the mission of independently monitoring and certifying compliance with the 12 Principles, the organization has become the world's largest facility certification program focused on workplace conditions, with over 1600 factories from 60 countries participating in the certification program.
