Fair Trade Standards Development and Revision

In accordance with ISEAL, Fair Trade USA™ standards are reviewed at least every five years. We also regularly review Price and Premium rates to identify externalities that may affect our producer and industry partners and to ensure fair trade products deliver positive impact on the ground. Read our Standards Development and Revision Procedure to see how it works. To propose revisions or clarifications to a standard, please email us.
