Responsible Purchasing Guidelines

WestPoint Home has established a Vendor Compliance Program that is used to screen all potential suppliers.  WestPoint Home uses UL Responsible Sourcing to manage social and security audits at all vendor locations.  Social compliance addresses several issues, including the following:
  • Environmental Compliance
  • Worker Safety
  • Human Rights
  • Customs–Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) compliance
WestPoint Home requires every vendor to meet the requirements of its vendor compliance program. As discussed earlier, this policy examines the vendor’s labor practices, social compliance, manufacturing capability, security, and safety policies. Companies that do not meet those requirements are not placed on the approved vendor list.
