Compliance

Producer’s Compliance Audit:

EP Apparel Sourcing was established with an objective of ensuring worker rights in the workplace. As a manufacturer and buying agent this is one matter of which we are not prepared to compromise. Our associated factories and suppliers are required to maintain certain standards, of which we keep a very strict check to ensure satisfactory working conditions are maintained. Our philosophy is- if we are good people, we should be associated with other good people. Every bond within a weave of cloth matters; workers make the bonds of commitment for EP Apparel Sourcing to achieve its journey. Our associated factories and suppliers fully meet all the requirements which WHO (World Health Organization) and ILO (International Labor Organization) have mandated. EP Apparel Sourcing associates are also WRAP and BSCI certified. We conduct our own audit to ensure compliance of all related areas; if we find any factory is not operating in accordance with these standards, we cancel our association with that factory until they improve their conditions. EP Apparel Sourcing only place orders with factories that maintain internationally acceptable standards of compliance.

EP Apparel Sourcing conducts and records outcomes of audits of suppliers and producers in the following way

  • We have a dedicated team working together to gather, evaluate, and analyze the social conditions and compliance of our associated factories and suppliers
  • We maintain a database of all our factories and suppliers
  • We emphasize our association with WRAP or BSCI certified factories
  • We regularly monitor associated factories
  • We take insights from factory workers
  • We randomly conduct qualitative and quantitative research on social, technical, C-TPAT compliance issues of our associated factories and suppliers half-yearly
  • We hold collaborative associations with various organizations that conduct social and compliance audits of factories
Human rights

EP Apparel Sourcing has zero tolerance of human rights violation. Any factory or supplier associated with EP Apparel Sourcing must promote the human rights of every individual who work there at all times without exception. We are highly aware of issues surrounding human rights that have occurred in the past within the garment industry and we will do everything it takes to ensure EP Apparel Sourcing enforces the opposite message in favour of equality and justice.

Workers & working conditions
