About WRAP:
Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, WRAP is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to the certification of factories engaged in lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing throughout the world. The WRAP Certification Program is based on 12 Production Principles focusing on compliance with local laws, workplace regulations, universal workers' rights, the environment, customs compliance and security.

Factories that demonstrate proper adoption, deployment and monitoring of all 12 Production Principles receive certification for one year. The certificate applies to the individual factory, not a parent company or brand. With this comprehensive factory-based model, WRAP has become the world's largest facility certification program focused on workplace conditions, with over 1400 factories in more than 86 countries participating in the Certification Program.
