ICTI CARE was delighted to participate in the Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors (APSCA) roundtable discussions in New York last week.
APSCA (Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors) was created to ensure the 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.
ICTI CARE continues to work with external stakeholders to champion best practice and to strengthen the integrity of third party audits. ICTI CARE is an active participant in APSCA’s working group to both define and develop capabilities for auditors addressing integrity and other social compliance issues.
Once fully completed, APSCA’s certification process will ensure auditors have consistent training, education, background checks, and demonstrated competencies which are standard requirements in comparable professional auditor associations.
ICTI CARE will continue to participate and support APSCA in their mission to enhance the professionalism and credibility of the individuals and organizations performing independent social compliance audits.
