SA8000 / BSCI

Strengthening and communicating responsibility & Equal rights all over the world

Nowadays, the subject of Corporate Social Responsibility is attracting increasing attention in the media and in society as a whole: within the framework of risk management and corporate ethics, and in particular, against the background of worldwide outsourcing, companies must ensure that their suppliers behave responsibly towards both people and the environment.

TÜV NORD CERT offers certification according to Social Accountability (SA) 8000 and auditing to BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) to companies who support such responsible behavior and wish to communicate this effectively to customers, partners, and consumers.

Social Accountability 8000 International Standard (SA 8000)

The SA8000 Standard is based on internationally recognized standards of decent work, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO conventions, and national laws. SA8000 applies a management-systems approach to social performance and emphasizes continual improvement—not checklist-style auditing. ​It includes the same requirements as BSCI, but augments these with a management system identical to standard DIN EN ISO 9001

amfori BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) (Verification)

In these times of global markets, many companies outsource their production to other parts of the world. Particularly when working in less developed countries, such companies carry a high level of social responsibility.

With the special amfori BSCI supplier audit, you can ensure that your suppliers behave responsibly towards people and the planet.

BSCI is an initiative of the Foreign Trade Association (FTA), the leading business association of European and international commerce that brings together over 1,500 retailers, importers, brands and national associations to improve the political and legal framework for trade in a sustainable way. 

The BSCI and its members follow a positive, non-confrontational approach to compliance and want to heighten supplier's and manufacturer's awareness of their social responsibilities and occupational health and safety issues. The BSCI aims to reward the suppliers' good will and willingness to cooperate.
