Glossary

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).

Regular compliance criteria

The majority of compliance criteria are classified as regular. The regular compliance criteria are linked to minimum and/or progress requirements of the Fairtrade Standards. Any non-conformity with regular compliance criteria needs to be remedied by the organization in a given timeframe in order to maintain certification, or in the case of a renewal certification, to qualify for re-certification.
