Open Apparel Registry

The Open Apparel Registry (OAR) is a neutral, open source tool mapping garment facilities worldwide and allocating a unique ID to each. Since launching at the end of March 2019, the OAR has grown to include over 50,000 facilities uploaded by more than 250 Contributors, including major global brands, multi-stakeholder initiatives, civil society organisations and factory groups. The tool is used by stakeholders across the apparel sector to eliminate confusion and facilitate collaboration, enabling interoperability across systems and tackling the long-standing industry problem of facility identification. As well as many other efficiency and process benefits, the way that the OAR organizes and presents data ultimately improves the lives of some of the most vulnerable workers in global supply chains.
