As a fifth-generation family-owned business, Kevins Worldwide® is committed to conducting its business with the highest standards of business ethics.

We operate under compliance with applicable laws and with a regard for human rights and fair labor practices. While we recognize and respect the cultural differences that exist throughout the world, Kevins Worldwide® expects its vendors and agents to share and uphold these values.

The Code of Vendor Conduct was established to reflect Kevins Worldwide® desire to do business with vendors who comply with the legal requirements applicable to the conduct of their business, and who respect accepted international labor standards. Kevins Worldwide® ensures that vendors are informed of, and understand, the terms of the code.

Kevins Worldwide® has also adopted the Fair Labor Association’s Workplace Code of Conduct and Compliance Benchmarks. The FLA is a unique organization that brings together multiple stakeholders to improve the lives of thousands of workers around the globe.

Assessment and Compliance

Visits to production facilities are made by Kevins Worldwide® agents who are required by agreement to promptly notify Kevins Worldwide® of any event of noncompliance with the code. Vendors will be notified of the results of the visits and offered guidance with respect to matters requiring correction or which need improvement; however, Kevins Worldwide® reserves the right to suspend future orders or to terminate its relationship with the vendor for compliance failures.

Cooperation and Communication

While we believe our vendor accountability process promotes responsible working conditions, we also believe that the continued cooperation and communication among all parties interested in this important area offer the best long-term prospects for improved labor conditions.

Employment Standards


Vendors will comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding protection and preservation of the environment in their country.

Monitoring, Documentation and Compliance

Vendors will maintain on site all documentation that may be needed to demonstrate compliance with this Code of Vendor Conduct.

Communication of Standards
