The BSCI Code of Conduct is a core foundation of BSCI and contains 10 labour requirements which BSCI participating companies commit to gradually implement in their supply chains. The BSCI Code reflects the most important international labour standards protecting the workers' rights such as the International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions and other important Declarations of the United Nations, the OECD guidelines for multinational enterprises and the UN Global Compact. The Code has, until now, served on a three-year basis. The time has come for BSCI to revise its Code to also consider the latest international texts and guidelines protective of workers' rights. As this year BSCI celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary, it is also a time to look ahead on a long-term basis and provide a Code that is stable and aspirational to serve for the decade to come.
The BSCI Code has previously undergone an internal consultation among its participants. With this feedback integrated, BSCI invites all stakeholders and interested parties to provide their feedback on the current draft of the Code. BSCI not only welcomes, but needs your valuable input, keen insights and the wisdom of your experience. The consultation process will be open for feedback until 13 September 2013.
