BSCI Resources on the statutory minimum wage in China


The BSCI Code of Conduct stipulates that wages paid for regular working hours, overtime hours and overtime differentials shall meet or exceed legal minimums and / or industry standards. During a BSCI audit, auditors have to check if the wages actually paid are in line with the legal requirements – and also if they meet a living wage, being a criterion in the section “Best practice for industry”. In China, the most important sourcing country of BSCI members, statutory minimum wages are fixed for cities and provinces. In the section “Other documents” in the BSCI website’s members area, an overview on the current legal wages for regular working hours in China is provided to BSCI members. This list is subject to updates according to the regular revision by the Chinese authorities.   More information, here.   Contact: Olga Orozco, Managing Director Operations
