Fair Wear regularly verifies the implementation of these labour practices through factory audits and worker interviews both onsite and offsite, and through annual ‘Brand Performance Checks’ which assess how well each member’s management policies support the Code of Labour Practices. The Brand Performance Check is a tool used to figure out how the member brands’ business practices improve labour conditions. Every year, brands’ efforts are reviewed by measuring how well they have assessed, identified, and resolved issues with their suppliers.
Brand Performance Checks help brands determine what they are doing well and where they can improve to create positive and sustainable change. Making the results of these checks open to the public ensures transparency and keeps our member brands accountable. The high level of transparency enhances our member brands’ credibility and sets a positive example that will hopefully inspire other brands to consider their own business practices.
