WRAP is a part of the Supply Chain Audit business and one of TÜV Rheinland’s targeted CSR schemes to be developed in Asia Pacific Region. The preparation started in May 2019, and the plan was to qualify at least 2-3 countries (Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia) to be WRAP monitoring firms in the year 2019.
The Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) accredited TÜV Rheinland Indonesia as an authorized Monitoring Firm providing comprehensive services for WRAP certification.
The Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) program is one of the world’s most recognised independent certifications for the apparel/textile, footwear, and sewn products industries. WRAP is supported by the International Apparel Federation, the American Apparel & Footwear Association and as well as more than 20 international trade and industry associations. The program monitors and certifies lawful, humane and ethical production. Voluntary WRAP certification distinguishes manufacturers of all sizes aiming to successfully export products particularly to the United States.
“We are proud to announce that TÜV Rheinland Indonesia is an Accredited Monitoring Firm by The Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) organization. Social compliance, sustainability, and traceability are becoming increasingly important aspects of supply chain management in today’s global value chain”, said Ms. Weni Yuliarti, who is Country Business Field Manager of Customized Services, TÜV Rheinland Indonesia.
As an accredited monitoring firm that conducts independent audits, we ensure that the facility fulfils requirements according to WRAP principles. The audit determines whether criterias have been met or if it warrants changes/additions to the system in order to achieve certification. The audit and subsequent corrective actions are instrumental in WRAP certification being successfully awarded to one’s facility.
