SAI is pleased to announce the completion and submission of three Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP) Equivalence Process Self-Assessments. The GSCP Equivalence Process is a benchmarking tool that allows for a comparison of the SA8000® system to the GSCP Reference tools. Benchmarking analysis was conducted in three areas:  Audit Competence; Audit Process and Methodology; and the GSCP Reference Code. Through this participation, SAI seeks to demonstrate the SA8000 Standard's position as a leading standard and resource for measuring the social compliance of facilities throughout the supply chain. This participation is also aligned with SAI and GSCP's memorandum of understanding, announced in June 2011.   

The GSCP is a business-driven program for the continual improvement of working and environmental conditions in global supply chains. The GSCP provides a global cross-industry platform to promote the exchange of knowledge and best practices in order to build comparability and transparency between existing social compliance and environmental compliance systems.
