Fair Trade certification for clothing

Trans Fair USA introduced standards for certification of clothing. 
Requirements:  A company can either purchase the seed cotton directly from a certified producer group or require that their manufacturer source Fair Trade cotton from those groups. Produce the garments in a factory that meets Fair Trade Certified standards and has been approved by TransFair USA. Purchase products according to Fair Trade terms and agree to pay a 1-10% Fair Trade premium to a worker-controlled fund.

Another Non-tariff Barrier or protecting workers in developing economies?
