This year will mark 15 years since the Ethical Toy Program was established as the leading responsible sourcing program for the global toy, play and entertainment industries.
During this time, we have worked with thousands of toy factories to raise ethical standards and improved working conditions for millions of frontline workers. Our established expertise in factory-based manufacturing makes the Ethical Toy Program your ideal social compliance partner not only for toys but also a host of other related products.
In addition to toys, IETP Certified factories manufacture a broad range of other products including maternity, juvenile and baby products, apparel, electronics, printing, stationery and many more. Retailers and brands can use the factory search functionality in our Connect Platform to search our global directory of ethically-certified factories by different product types.
We are committed to further extending IETP Certification to cover new product categories and to reach more factories within China and beyond. In July, the Ethical Toy Program will present and exhibit at CMBE China, the world's largest trade fair for child, baby and maternity products & services.
We are also investing to increase the availability of IETP Certification outside of Asia, responding to requests from our Buyer Members who wish to see IETP Certification extended to cover factories located in the United Kingdom, North America and Continental Europe.
We're working to make our program available wherever you need it, speak to a member of our team to find out more about how we can support you across different product categories and help you access more responsible sourcing opportunities in new regions.
