WHAT IS BUSINESS SOCIAL COMPLIANCE INITIATIVE?
The BSCI is the European social monitoring system for ethical sourcing initiated by the Brussels-based Foreign Trade Association (FTA). BSCI is a business-driven initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in the global supply chain. BSCI unites hundreds of companies around one common Code of Conduct and supports them in their efforts to build an ethical supply chain by providing them with a step-by-step development- oriented system, applicable to all sectors and all sourcing countries.
BSCI Code of Conduct is built on the most important International Conventions protecting workers' rights, notably the ILO Conventions and recommendations. All BSCI participants commit to implement the Code in their supply chains. BSCI supports companies by providing them with a range of interlinked activities and tools to achieve a socially compliant supply chain.
The 11 principles of the Code of Conduct that BSCI participants commit to implement in their supply chains are:
The rights to Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
Decent Working Hours
Occupational Health and Safety
No Child Labour
Protection of Young Workers
No Precarious Employment
No Bonded Labour
Protection of the Environment
Ethical Business Behaviour
