SLCP does not apply any code of conduct or audit standard. Instead, the outcomes of the SLCP assessment process (verified facility data on social and labor conditions) can be used by all brands, standards and others to come to a conclusion related to their own Code of Conduct or audit standard.
SLCP does not score verified facility data. The verified assessment report contains raw data on all compliance topics related to social and labor conditions. Most Accredited Hosts (AHs) offer services to their users (e.g. brands) to interpret the raw data and come to some sort of scoring. Contact your AH to understand what services they can provide.
Based on the ILO (International Labor Organization) Conventions, the Data Collection Tool questions that relate to local law do include ‘legal flags’. When an answer to a question is not in line with national legislation, the Verifier can raise a ‘legal flag’. Verifiers need to include a reference to the applicable law(s) when raising the flag. They can make use of Natlex for national labor, social security and related human rights legislation. The flagged questions are highlighted in the Verification Summary. The Verification Summary also lists all inconsistencies between the facility’s and Verifier’s answers.
