WRAP certification helps open more doors to global buyers

Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) is an independent and international NGO, dedicated to certifying facilities that engage in lawful, humane and ethical operations. It is the world's largest labour and environmental certification program for the apparel manufacturing sector.

WRAP conducts internal auditor training in countries throughout the world, to assist facility managers in understanding WRAP principles and buyer's social compliance requirements. WRAP's training is certified by International Register of Certificated Auditor (IRCA), the world's largest certification body for management systems auditors in London, England.

Those successfully completing the course will have thorough knowledge of WRAP requirements which will assist them in gaining WRAP certification and meeting compliance needs of their customers.

The Social System Foundation and Internal Auditor Training Course that WRAP provides for factories all over the world, combines a one-day Social System Foundation Course (IRCA Course A17331), with a two-day Internal Social System Auditor Course (IRCA Course A17332).

After the intensive training, attendees get a thorough understanding of how suppliers can continually assess factories to maintain compliance with local laws and customer codes.

Mr Avedis Seferian, Director of Compliance Administration at WRAP, was recently in India to conduct a training program in New Delhi, the capital of India. Fibre2fashion caught up with him and took the opportunity to speak to him and understand more about the WRAP training course and to know, how it helps the apparel manufacturing sector.

We began by asking him as to how attending a WRAP training course, will help the companies from the apparel export sector, to which he replied by saying, “Attending a WRAP training course will help give a company better information about what is required to obtain WRAP certification, and a better understanding of a management systems approach to social compliance.

“This will be helpful for exporters because WRAP certification improves a factory's competitiveness by opening more doors of the factory to international buyers. Further, it also helps impact the factory's bottom line directly, because the management system that the facility implements in order to obtain WRAP certification will make it a much more, efficient production unit.

“This is because a socially compliant facility will have higher worker satisfaction, which in turn will result in higher worker productivity. Also, it lowers worker turnover, which in turn lowers all the related costs involved with having to constantly hire new employees (finding them, training them, the opportunity cost lost in getting a new hire to the same level of efficiency the previous worker was at prior to leaving, etc).”
