If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms.
The program assists enterprises improve practices based on core ILO international labour standards and national labour law. It does this with a strong emphasis on improving worker-management cooperation, working conditions and social dialogue. Enhancing respect for labour standards helps enterprises meet the social compliance demands of global buyers, improves conditions for workers, and helps firms become more competitive by increasing productivity and quality. Better Work focuses on labour intensive industries having large numbers of vulnerable workers in developing countries, such as agribusiness, apparel, construction, and light manufacturing. The program is developing both global tools and country level projects.

Following the events of September 11, 2001, governments and customs organizations around the world have implemented new supply chain security standards. Global Security Verification (GSV) program employs a cutting-edge methodology for promoting best practices throughout the global trade industry, enabling importers and suppliers to mitigate risks associated with the cross-border transport of goods, while simultaneously expediting their arrival at destination markets. Best practices are achieved through the effective utilization of resources, structured processes and innovation. GSV integrates multiple global supply chain security initiatives, including C-TPAT, PIP and AEO. Their mission is to partner with international suppliers and importers to drive the development of a global security verification process, resulting in increased safety assurance, risk control, efficiency and cost savings for all participants.
One of the most common complaints made by the international supplier base is the repetition of Supply Chain Security audits. This common complaint brought multiple industry leaders together in September 2014 to identify a strategy that would help reduce the cost and number of supply chain security audits conducted on global suppliers and factories each year. This collaboration led to the creation of a single agreed-upon security audit and sharing platform that would allow importers to conduct and evaluate shared CTPAT compliant supplier and factory security audits. The Supplier Compliance Audit Network (SCAN) was developed to facilitate this strategy and establish an audit sharing platform that would help improve audit consistency, lower audit costs, and reduce audit frequency while maintaining confidentiality. Both US Customs and the CTPAT organization have been introduced to SCAN and have acknowledged the potential benefits of the program. SCAN is comprised of a diverse group of importers both big and small. Member companies may be competitors in the market, but partners in the efforts to improve supply chain security. SCAN is committed to creating a shared supply chain security audit program. SCAN will benefit both the member companies and the global suppliers who participate through fewer audits conducted and increased consistency among supply chain security expectations. This collaboration will lead to lower costs of goods for both parties.
