Certification process

Organizations seeking certification to the SA 8000 accreditation demands to apply to a SAAS-accredited certification body. Auditors visit factories to assess corporate practice on a vast range of issues and assess the state of a company’s management systems.

A certificate is awarded attesting company’s compliance to SA 8000. The certificate is an evidence of the organization’s good practice processes and remarkably improves workplace conditions. The certification process is a multiple-step process. The certification cycle is described briefly:

  • Receiving application for Certification from client
