What are the responsibilities associated with affiliating with the WRC?

Affiliates are required to:

  • Adopt a manufacturing code of conduct and work toward the incorporation of this code into applicable contracts with licensees;
  • Ask licensees to provide the WRC with a list, updated quarterly, of names and locations of all factories involved in the production of their logo goods; and
  • Pay annual affiliation fees, which are either $1,500 or 1% of gross licensing revenues, whichever is greater, up to a maximum cap of $50,000.
