United Apparel Fiji gets Platinum status as WRAP facility
08
Aug '17
United Apparel Fiji Ltd has attained the Platinum status as a worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) facility, becoming the first company to attain it in the Australasia region. This certification is awarded to facilities that are consistently compliant with the 12 principles of WRAP for 3 consecutive audits and require no corrective actions.

The company had attained the Gold certification of WRAP two years ago. It attained the gold status in its first attempt itself.

The company believes in the continuous improvement process and had set the goal to attain the Platinum status, said Fiji media reports quoting Kaushik Kumar, managing director of United Apparel Fiji.

The WRAP Principles are based on generally accepted international workplace standards, local laws and workplace regulations, and include the spirit or language of relevant conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO). The Principles encompass human resources management, health and safety, environmental practices, and legal compliance including import/export and customs compliance and security standards.

The WRAP Certification Program’s objective is to independently monitor and certify compliance with these standards, to ensure that sewn products are being produced under lawful, humane and ethical conditions. Participating facilities voluntarily commit to ensuring that their manufacturing practices will meet these standards, and further commit to passing along, on their part, the expectation that their contractors and suppliers likewise comply with these standards.
