Portugal

Portugal falls under FWF’s low-risk policy. This means that members are required to do their own monitoring, and should be aware of specific risks identified by FWF in the country.

Portugal is still recovering from the consequences of the most critical economic and social crisis in its recent history. Fair Wear Foundation considers Portugal a low risk country for production. For more information see the FWF low risk policy document.

In 2014, FWF organised a supplier seminar together with MOST.

The risk assessment for Portugal was updated in 2016.

For questions about FWF’s work in Portugal, please contact FWF at info@fairwear.org.
