Code of conduct

BSCI is based around a holistic Code of Conduct, which sets out the values and 11 labour principles that BSCI participants strive to implement in their supply chains in a step-by-step development approach. The BSCI Code draws on important international labour standards protecting workers’ rights such as International Labor Organization (ILO) conventions, declarations of the United Nations (UN) as well as guidelines of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Here you will find the Code of Conduct as well as the Terms of Implementation which participants commit to when they join the initiative. You will also find the Glossary which gives further explanation.

Additional documents that are relevant to participants can be found on the Code of Conduct page for participants  after login.
