Apply to be a Fair Trader
In order to receive endorsement as a Fair Trader of Australia, businesses are required to demonstrate their commitment to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade including creating opportunities for disadvantaged producers, payment of a fair price, gender equity and fair working conditions.
The Assessment Process
The first stage involves completing the initial application form with preliminary details of the business. The initial application will be screened for suitability of the business to undergo the second stage assessment.
The second stage involves a detailed self-assessment process, including an assessment against the Ten Fair Trade Principles which comprise the Fair Trade Standard, along with producer and peer references. Depending on your situation, there may also be a producer self-assessment form for your producer partners to complete.
To commence your application please download FORM A and email the Fair Trade Association.
