   Business Challenge

The current global business environment is motivating organizations to consider the full social and ethical impacts of their corporate activities and policies. Those companies who are able to prove a responsible approach to broader social and ethical issues will gain a vital competitive edge and inspire the confidence of stakeholders such as clients, investors, local communities and consumers. Social concerns like child labour, forced labour and discrimination require companies to not only consider their own direct sphere of influence but also their entire supply chain. The concept and value of employing an independent, third party to monitor social responsibility is becoming increasingly important.


What is SA8000?
SA8000 is the first auditable standard in this field. In particular, it is compatible with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS18001 structure and based on conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.



Who is SAAS?
SAAS "Social Accountability Accreditation Services" is a non-governmental, international, multi-stakeholder organization dedicated to improving workplaces and communities by developing and implementing socially responsible standards. SAAS convenes key stakeholders to develop consensus-based voluntary standards, conducts cost-benefits research, accredits auditors, provides training and technical assistance, and assists corporations in improving social compliance in their supply chains.
Does SA8000 apply to all industries and countries?
Yes, SA8000 is applicalbe to all industires & countries except Maritime & Myanmar (Burma) respectively. Certifications are not permitted in the maritime industry (cruise ships, shipping, and floating oil platforms) due to the problems in addressing working hours and other possibly discriminatory practices. Similarly certifications are not permitted in Myanmar ( Burma),until the ILO lifts its sanctions, put in place against that country on November 30, 2000 and reaffirmed March 24, 2005. However, Bureau Veritas Certification can help organizations in these sectors adopt alternative approaches in order to achieve their corporate social responsibility objectives.
