Claim a Facility

The Open Apparel Registry (OAR) enables facility owners or managers to claim facilities. Once a facility claim is verified by OAR staff, the facility claimant can add information about the facility such as a description of the facility, contact information, and production info which is displayed publicly on the facility details page.

What is a "Claimed" facility on the OAR?

Facility owners and / or senior management are able to “claim” their facility profile on the OAR and, after a short verification process, add additional details including production capabilities, MOQs, lead times, certifications and more.

How Claims are Verified (Disclaimer)

For verified facility claims, OAR staff has verified through a three-step process that the claimant has a genuine connection to the facility it is claiming and sufficient authority to make the claim. However, OAR staff does not verify each detail the claimant subsequently adds about a facility, e.g. production capabilities, certifications, MOQs etc.

If you believe that some claimed facility data is inaccurate or incorrect, please send an email to with a link to the facility details page and an explanation of the problem.
