Sep '09
Co-organized with STR Responsible Sourcing, a global responsible sourcing service, WRAP will hold a half-day awareness seminar on WRAP certification in Bangalore, India on September 19, 2009.

Apparel producers face growing pressure from retailers, governments, consumers, shareholders, the media and others to be held accountable for their global production practices.

The seminar will begin with origins of social compliance, an introduction to WRAP and its principles, its certification process and how this certification can benefit a business. Attendees will receive valuable information regarding implementation of the social compliance management system in their facilities and obtain guidance on all WRAP requirements.

A detailed presentation will be given by WRAP representatives, the Director of Compliance Administration Mr. Avedis Seferian and the Director of Training Mr. Stuart Webster, followed by an interactive dialogue with the attendees on practical implementation issues when it comes to setting up a social compliance management system.

To register, please email Sandeep Gaur at sandeep.gaur@str-india.com.
