Who can join?

Fair Wear Foundation focuses on the European market. Membership is open to garment companies with:

  • More than 50% production of the brand’s production is in countries  where Fair Wear is active, or in what Fair Wear categorises as low-risk countries.*
  • More than 50% production is the brand’s own production**
  • A minimum annual turnover of €10 million.

*All present member states of the European Union (EU) except Bulgaria and Romania, which means 25 member states, as well as member states of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) including Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland are considered ‘low-risk countries’.

**‘Own production’ goods are commissioned from a factory by the Fair Wear members, directly or through an agent or other intermediary, normally to the design of the Fair Wear affiliate. Member companies have a direct responsibility for the working conditions at sites making ‘own production’ goods.
