The integrity of our standards depends on a dedicated team of inspectors based in the countries where we operate—India and Nepal—who regularly visit our licensed manufacturers on a surprise, random basis. GoodWeave International’s Certification Division (GWI-CD) coordinates and oversees this team of inspectors, evaluates their findings, and implements the certification program that is at the heart of our work.
