The table below summarizes apparel factories’ compliance with selected international core labour standards and national legal requirements. You can click the column headings to filter and sort the information, and on ‘View’ to see a factory’s non-compliance findings, along with relevant legal references and the factory's response, where they have posted one.
Green highlighting indicates that no – or insufficient – evidence was found of non-compliance on the specific labour issues we profile here on the Transparency Portal. However, highlighted factories (as well as those not highlighted) likely are non-compliant with other labour standards not featured on this site.
Modality indicates the assessment methodology – onsite, virtual, or hybrid. Where lockdown measures are in place or cases of the virus are high, Better Work conducts a Virtual Compliance Check (VCC) or a hybrid assessment.
A Hybrid Assessment is conducted through a combination of on-site and virtual means.
Where lockdown measures or ILO guidelines have prohibited staff from onsite visits, a Virtual Compliance Check (VCC) is conducted remotely by Better Work through virtual means. Virtual advisory and training are provided in addition to the VCC during such periods of restricted mobility.
VCC data collection is focused on a subset of questions from each compliance cluster, including issues subject to public reporting on Better Work’s Transparency Portal, Covid-19 related questions, un-remediated non-compliance findings from the previous assessment, and additional issues that surface during interviews, document reviews and/or observation. Findings in VCCs may not be comprehensive and some issues may be undetected.
Please see the FAQ for additional detail on assessment modalities.
Factories may submit additional evidence of improvements on the supplier portal. Due to Better Work policies to protect confidentiality, documents with names of individuals are not visible on the public site.
