Who can join?

Fair Wear Foundation membership is open to European garment companies with:

  • A minimum annual turnover of €10 million.
  • More than 50% production of the brand’s own products in countries where Fair Wear Foundation is active. Production that takes place in countries where Fair Wear Foundation does not require full audits can also count towards the required 50%.

Please note: Fair Wear is not currently processing new members.

Due to the recent developments with the global Covid-19 pandemic, we are postponing the date to receive new applications until further notice. Together with our member brands, we are doing all we can to support the people that make our clothes, while helping the brands to survive themselves. Therefore, our focus is now on our member brands, their employees and the workers across the supply chain. We are, just as many of you are, closely monitoring the situation. As soon as we can, we will announce a new date for re-opening new member applications. In the meantime, we would like to encourage you as well to look into all possibilities to support the workers in your factory.

If you are interested in becoming a member when applications re-open, please feel free to contact us on [email protected].
