Pro QC has over 38 years experience in quality control and quality assurance across virtually every industry.
Worker mistreatment, inadequate safety standards, hiring child labor, and excessive working hours are just some of the elements that can land a factory in hot water with relevant authorities.
The resulting factory scandals damage not only the factory itself but also the image of any brand buying from the factory and can lead to consumer boycotts and, in many cases, lawsuits. To counteract these practices, there are a plethora of social and ethical compliance standards in place.
Social and ethical compliance ensures that a buyer holds its factories and suppliers accountable for the way they treat their workers. The scope of the associated audits covers everything from remuneration to working hours and child labor thought to upholding health and safety standards.
Pro QC offers a range of social and ethical compliance audits that systematically assess the supplier’s treatment of their employees, their environmental standards, and their health and safety compliance.
The ISO 26000 Social Responsibility audit provides guidelines rather than certification. As such, this assessment should only be used to clarify social responsibility and effectively transform principles into effective global social responsibility best practice.
SA8000:2014 Social Accountability Standard (Social Accountability 8000:2014 Standard) is a set of internationally accepted corporate social responsibility (CSR) management tools and verification standards. The SA8000 audit and certification is suitable for any industry.
RBA version 6.0 is previously known as EICC (Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition). They review and evaluate the code of conduct every three years. The RBA audit and certification is globally known and most applicable electronics industry.
