Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) is an accreditation body working collaboratively with local textile, clothing and footwear (TCF) companies to ensure their Australian supply chains are transparent and legally compliant.

The ECA voluntary accreditation program offers practical and affordable assistance to Australian businesses that are manufacturing locally. It ensures that their Australian supply chains are fully transparent and legally compliant.

The ECA program maps a company’s supply chain throughout the entire cut, make and trim process, including all value adding processes. This is done via annual third party compliance audits conducted by the Textile, Clothing and Footwear Union of Australia (TCFUA) . By encouraging companies to view supply chain management as an integral part of business, ECA protects the rights of both local factory-based workers and outworkers.
