Sustainable Compliance Initiative (SCI) Training

 

FLA SCI Training 2012

 

The FLA, in collaboration with a group of brands and consultants, has developed the Sustainable Compliance Initiative (SCI), a comprehensive assessment system for measuring factories’ management system practices. The FLA will organize three rounds of SCI training in early 2012 in different countries, to equip PCs'/PSs' staff, FLA and external assessors, and supplier factories, with the necessary understanding and know-how to manage/interpret SCI assessments properly. Details of the SCI training plan are outlined below, and the registration for Round 2 training is now open.
