Made In USA Certified® Responds To Growing Consumer Demands For Apparel Manufactured In The USA

BOCA RATON, Fla. — October 29, 2013 — Made in USA Certified will present a webinar entitled
“Building Business and Building Trust with a ‘Made in USA’ Claim” explaining its proprietary,
independent supply chain certification process to authenticate and label apparel as Made in USA.
Since 2008, the company has been setting the standard for verifiable auditing certification
processes that give consumers, retailers, and manufacturers a reliable guarantee of a product’s
domestic origins. Julie Reiser, president of Made in USA Certified, will present the online seminar
on Wednesday, November 13th, at 12:00 noon EST. Email Dina Dunn at to reserve a

In a survey last year by the Boston Consulting Group, 80% of US consumers said they are
willing to pay more for products they know are made in the USA. This figure is up substantially
from the 60% found in the 2010 survey. “More consumers want USA made products as this study clearly
shows,” says Reiser. “The Made in USA Certified label lets consumers easily identify domestic
products and helps US apparel manufacturers and retailers take advantage of this growing trend.”

Made in USA Certified offers various labels depending on the domestic content of each product
evaluated.  The “Product of USA Certified” and “Grown in USA Certified” labels offer the most
rigorous standard, indicating that 100% of a product’s components are of completely domestic
origin. The “Service in USA Certified” label requires 100% of the labor force be in the USA. The
“Made in USA Certified” label provides four levels of certification to correspond with domestic
content based on share of manufacturing components: 51% or greater, 75% or greater, 91% or greater,
or 100%. Supply chain audits are conducted during the certification process. Once the annual
certification is granted, manufacturers may add the appropriate Made in USA Certified label and
traceable certification number to their products. Made in USA Certified supports its certificate
holders with multi-media marketing and advertising campaigns.
