The 'Social and Labor Convergence Programme (SLCP)', an initiative to have a standard-neutral, converged assessmentframework for the textile and clothing industry.

  • It is a mission to implement a Converged Assessment Framework (CAF) that supports stakeholder’s efforts to improve working conditions in global supply chains.
  • The CAF consists of a Data Collection Tool, a Verification Protocol and a Verifier Guidance document.
  • It is compatible with existing audit systems and codes of conduct. The same data set can be used by a wide range of stakeholders. It eliminates the need for repetitive audits to be carried out on the same facility.

Objectives

  • Reduce audit fatigue: avoid duplication and reduce the number of social & labour audits by replacing current proprietary assessment tools
  • Increase the opportunity for greater comparability of social & labour data
  • Redeploy resources towards improvement actions
  • To improve the working conditions in textile units by allowing resources that were previously designated for compliance audits to be redirected towards the improvement of social and labour conditions.
  • Build mutual trust and respect, measure and understand working conditions and improve those conditions over time.
