At School Trends, we understand the importance of our role in how garments are made and manufactured, we strive in every way to ensure that we meet and exceed regulations. To find out more, visit our Ethical Trading Policy page.
WRAP accreditation means that all our Leavers and Events garments meet the 12 WRAP Principles,
1. Compliance with Laws and Workplace Regulations
This means our facilities comply with laws and regulations in all locations where they conduct business.
2. Prohibition of Forced Labor
Our facilities do not use involuntary, forced or trafficked labor.
3. Prohibition of Child Labor
This means facilities do not hire any employee under the age of 14 or under the minimum age established by law for employment, whichever is greater, or any employee whose employment would interfere with compulsory schooling.
4. Prohibition of Harassment or Abuse
Our facilities provide a work environment free of supervisory or co-worker harassment or abuse, and free of corporal punishment in any form.
5. Compensation and Benefits
This means our facilities pay at least the minimum total compensation required by local law, including all mandated wages, allowances & benefits.
6. Hours of Work
This means we ensure hours worked each day, and days worked each week, do not exceed the limitations of the country’s law. Facilities will provide at least one day off in every seven-day period, except as required to meet urgent business needs.
7. Prohibition of Discrimination
This means facilities employ, pay, promote, and terminate workers on the basis of their ability to do the job, rather than on the basis of personal characteristics or beliefs.
8. Health and Safety
Ensuring facilities provide a safe and healthy work environment. Where residential housing is provided for workers, facilities will provide safe and healthy housing.
9. Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
Our facilities recognise and respect the right of employees to exercise their lawful rights of free association and collective bargaining.
Our facilities comply with environmental rules, regulations, and standards applicable to their operations, and will observe environmentally conscious practices in all locations where they operate.
11. Customs Compliance
We will comply with applicable customs laws, and in particular, will establish and maintain programs to comply with customs laws regarding illegal transshipment of finished products.
Our facilities maintain facility security procedures to guard against the introduction of non-manifested cargo into outbound shipments (i.e. drugs, explosives biohazards and or other contraband).
