Just Style - OAR drives standardised supply chain disclosure

Just Style, March 2022

"The Open Apparel Registry has launched a new development to expand standardised supply chain disclosure in the apparel sector in a move that means brands are now able to fulfil Transparency Pledge requirements through the platform."

The Open Apparel Registry (OAR) is a free, open data tool mapping garment facilities worldwide and allocating a unique ID to each. Data in the Open Apparel Registry is contributed and used by organisations all over the world, including major global brands, civil society organisations, multi-stakeholder initiatives, certification schemes, and factory groups.

Its latest move, which it says is its biggest to date since launch, means all users now have the option to contribute and search by a new set of facility data points in the tool.
