All fur, whether sourced from the wild or from fur farms must be responsibly sourced.
If sourced from fur farms then the supplier must have a recognised EU accreditation in place that can identify:
- The farm from which the fur is sourced.
- A high standard of rearing conditions for the animals.
- A high standard of farm hygiene.
- Evidence of robust feed management and environmental management.
The accreditation should come from local and national authorities in the country of origin.
Tags evidencing the certification should be displayed on all garments containing fur.
Where possible (e.g. Rabbit fur) this should be a by-product of the food industry.
If fur is sourced from wild animals then the animals must only be sourced via regulated trappers.
No fur should ever be sourced from endangered or threatened species.
