The Framework About

Audited Working Conditions

This business's workplace has been independently audited against internationally recognised standards for human rights at work. While audits can help companies identify risks and areas of improvement, they have limitations and additional due diligence is required to guarantee a safe workplace.

Proof Point Level
Product Business


  • Labour conditions are audited by the brand or a third party against an industry-recognised code (e.g. BSCI, SMETA, or WCA audits) and on a regular basis (at least once a year). The auditor must be monitoring the following aspects: no child labor is used, employment is not forced and the working conditions are considered safe, equal, and are compensated fairly. Workers should be treated with dignity and given the right to collective bargaining
  • As a minimum, human rights at work are defined in the International Labour Organisation's ‘Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work'
