SA8000

Popular Terms
International workplace-quality standard based on the concept of social accountability, its major objective is to ensure application of ethical practices in hiring and treatment of employees and in production of goods and services. Released in 1997 by the New York (USA) based non-profit body social accountability International (SAI), it relies on the codes-of-conduct affirmed by International Labour organization (ILO), the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights, and UN Convention On The Rights Of A Child. Founded on the principles of transparency, credibility, and verification, it is said to be the first global ethical standard and appropriate for any type of organization regardless of the country, industry, or size.
Although not an ISO standard, SA8000 is modeled on similar accreditation and certification schemes, and provides the requirements and audit methodology to evaluate and improve workplace conditions.
