The BSCI is based on the labor standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and other important international regulations like the UN Charta for Human Rights, as well as on national regulations. The Initiative aims at continuously improving the social performance of suppliers, leading to best practices and thus sustainably enhancing working conditions in factories worldwide.
ICTI Certification Audits
The International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI) consists of 20 toy trade associations from around the world. The council was established to ensure toys are produced in safe and humane environments. A coherent ethical standard, the Code of Business Practices and Auditing Protocol, was developed for factories to adopt and demonstrate due-diligence.
Intertek Compliance Verification
In order to facilitate the manufacturers to meet or exceed the compliance level, Intertek provides compliance verification against the local law requirements. At the end of the audit, a factual report indicating corrective actions required, if any, is issued to the requester to enable the facilities to be in compliance with the applicable local laws.
SA 8000 Program
SA8000 is based on the principles of 11 Conventions of International Labour Organisation (ILO), the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It provides companies with a system to integrate social accountability into all of their policies and practices.
