Cert-assessment

Policy

WRAP certified facilities must fully comply with WRAP’s 12 Principles during their certification period or they may be subject to decertification. A facility may be decertified under the following circumstances:

  • Violations involving Zero Tolerance issues
  • Failure to allow auditors to conduct a Post-Certification Audit (PCA)
  • Refusal to go through a remediation process to correct non-compliances found during a PCA
  • Failure to correct non-compliances found during a PCA in a timely manner

There are three levels of WRAP certification – Platinum, Gold and Silver. The certificate issued to a facility is determined by WRAP and depends on the extent to which the audit indicates full compliance and management commitment to the WRAP Principles

If at any time WRAP learns that any factory in the WRAP program is actively participating in or associated with any of the below Zero Tolerance issues, the factory will be automatically decertified (if applicable) and banned from the WRAP program in all capacities without the option to return nor be certified in the future.

  • Deliberate and ongoing human rights violations including:
    • Child labor, including the worst forms of child labor (slavery, forced labor, trafficking, serfdom, debt bondage, prostitution, pornography, work that involves children in illicit activity, or work that is likely to harm the child physically or morally)
    • Forced labor (bonded labor, not allowing workers to leave at their own will, forced to work overtime)
    • Inhumane treatment (use of threats of physical harm or extreme intimidation, corporal punishment, mental or physical coercion)
  • Unethical actions that encourage the auditor(s) to compromise their integrity
  • Threatening physical harm towards the audit team
  • False representation of certificate or audit report (i.e. altered or fake certificates or reports)
  • False representation of production processes (i.e. hiding full/partial production floors and/or processes from auditor)
