Public Comment Invitation Draft Code of Professional Conduct & Competency Framework for Social Compliance Auditors
As you are aware, APSCA has been moving towards its Mission “To Enhance the professionalism and credibility of the individuals and organisations performing independent social compliance audits”. This has involved APSCA utilising Working and Consultation groups, which comprised of industry experts and practitioners, who have been integral in the development of the APSCA Code of Professional Conduct and the Competency Framework for Social Compliance Auditors.
We are excited to be opening these draft documents for Public Comment to ensure all stakeholders in the social compliance industry have an opportunity to provide feedback as we near the finalisation, release and implementation of the certification process for social compliance auditors.
APSCA Implementation Team With the progress towards public comment for the draft APSCA Code of Professional Conduct (Code) and Competency Framework Social Compliance Auditors, APSCA has commenced work on the implementation process for the Auditor Certification process.
We have received interest from some wanting to participate on the consultation group – if you are interested please let us know by emailing email@example.com. We appreciate support from member firms, brands, retailers, schemes, initiatives and any interested party. Whilst this is being developed for certification of auditors, we appreciate and need feedback from those that will be the user and receiver of the services provided by the auditors.
We anticipate the ask to be a couple of 1 hour phone calls over the coming few months plus request for feedback to documentation as it is being developed. The goal is to pilot the examination process during Q4 – specific country(s) TBA.
Look forward to having your participation as we continue to move forward.
