THE SOCIAL AND LABOR CONVERGENCE PROGRAM (SLCP)

SLCP

The Social & Labour Conversion Program (SLCP) envisions to bring together unique perspectives to create an efficient, scalable and sustainable solution for social audits.

It aims at implementing the first industry-wide framework to assess social and labor conditions. This includes a standard-agnostic tool and verification methodology which collects objective social and labor data that stakeholders can use to identify opportunities for improvement and track progress.

By implementing a Converged Assessment Framework (CAF) for social and labor data collection that can replace all current audit methodologies. The CAF consists of a Data Collection Tool and verification methodology: together they provide the tools to come to a set of verified data on social and labor conditions in facilities, that a facility can share with its business partners, including brands and standards. No additional data collection (audits) is needed.

Audit Methodology

Verifications are conducted by any authorized verification body and the methodology looks to collect objective social and labor data that stakeholders can use to identify opportunities for improvement and track progress.

CONVERGENCE ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK (CAF)

The Converged Assessment Framework consists of three elements:

Data Collection Tool (Excel and online on the host platforms)
‘Questionnaire’ used to gather data on working conditions in a facility and used by the Verifier to review all the questions that a facility must answer in the self/joint-assessment. When completed, this document includes both the facility’s and verifiers’ answers. It can be filled in online through an Accredited Host platform or offline through a downloadable excel file.

Verifier Guidance (PDF)
