SA8000 is the leading social certification standard for factories and organisations across the globe. Established by Social Accountability International (SAI) in 1997 as a multi-stakeholder initiative, the Standard has evolved into an overall framework that helps certified organisations demonstrate their dedication to the fair treatment of workers.
The Standard measures social performance in eight areas important to social accountability in workplaces, complemented by the management system element that emphasizes worker involvement and drives continuous improvement in all areas of the Standard.
The SA8000® Standard is appreciated by brands and industry leaders for its rigorous approach to ensuring the highest quality of social compliance in their supply chains, all the while without sacrificing business interests.
SA8000 reflects labour provisions contained within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions. It also respects, complements and supports national labour laws around the world, and currently helps secure ethical working conditions for over two million workers across industries.
