The Association for Professional Social Compliance Auditors (APSCA) was created to ensure professionalism, consistency and credibility of individual auditors and organizations performing independent social compliance audits, and to promote the use of independent social compliance audits, as a tool to advance workplace conditions for workers, globally. The APSCA certification process will ensure auditors have consistent training, education, background checks, and demonstrate competencies that are standard requirements in comparable professional auditor associations.

Among the data to be verified and analyzed is child and forced labor, occupational health and safety, and wages. The project does not focus on establishing minimum requirements, it would not be a scoring/grading/ranking system, it would not certify facilities, and definitively would not be considered a new Code of Conduct, IT platform or database. The goal of collecting the information is to release the burden of existing duplicate information, reduce the excess of audits, and provide additional resources for the improvement of social and labor conditions.
