BSCI

The Business Social Compliance Initiative is a leading business-driven initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in the global supply chain. BSCI unite more than 900 companies around a development-oriented system applicable to all sectors and sourcing countries.

Why BSCI

In 2003, BSCI was established by the Foreign Trade Association (FTA) in order to create consistency and harmonization for companies wanting to improve their social compliance in the global supply chain. BSCI aims to establish a common platform for the various European companies Codes of Conducts and monitoring systems, it also lays the groundwork for a common monitoring system for social compliance. The experience and the know-how gained by companies and associations from their monitoring systems were the foundations of the BSCI approach and management instruments. In 2004 the development phase was achieved and the system has since been implemented worldwide.

Following dramatic growth of BSCI over the years, in 2011 FTA made the decision to clearly include sustainability as one of its pillars and therefore adopted a stronger organizational structure to further develop the growth of the association and maintain an excellent service to its members.
