If you feel that the world of Fair Trade has its very own language – do not worry! With this glossary we would like to guide you through the specific technical terms used by FLOCERT, Fairtrade International and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
The Appeals Committee controls decisions that affect the certification/monitoring status of a organization certified by FLOCERT or WFTO member, including application decisions. FLOCERT certified organizations/WFTO members can challenge these decisions by submitting a request to the committee, which then re-evaluates the respective decisions.
