Salient Features of the RUGMARK

The concept for the scheme of carpets without child labour, termed RUGMARK, was based on the following principles:

  • manufacturers/exporters and buyers/ importers should directly cooperate within the scheme.
  • the membership as well as the decision to accept controls on production should be totally voluntary.
  • NGOs should form an integral part of RUGMARK for supervision as well as image-building and marketing and provide support in respect of social issues.
  • a control system has to be established in the carpet manufacturing regions to avoid use of illegal child labour as also to safeguard payment of minimum wages.
  • the mechanism put in place has to be cost-effective with extremely lean and efficient administration.
  • children who illegally worked on the looms should not only be "liberated", but also supported by appropriate social welfare and educational facilities.

India has more than 350 licencees/carpet exporters by the end of December 2009.
