SA8000:2014 Standard Opens for Public Consultation

Interested parties are invited to submit comments and suggestions on the proposed SA8000:2014


SAI invites all interested parties to participate in the revision of the SA8000 standard. For 60-days, beginning today, December 18, 2013 and ending on February 16, 2014, a proposal for the 2014 version of SA8000 will open for public consultation. During this time SAI is hoping that as many stakeholders as possible will participate in the consultation process by writing their comments in a tool created using Survey Monkey. The more comments received the more confident SAI is in revising the standard in line with the expectations of its users. Here is the link to the Public Consultation platform and to the Standard revision page on the SAI website.


All comments will be transparently exhibited on the SAI website, and a paper will be posted in the month following the close of the consultation period that analyzes and discusses which of the comments were used to further revise the standard and which significant comments will be saved for the next revision.
