For any company, it’s very important to be recognized by organizations that establish international standards and audits by accredited third parties such as Accord, BSCI, ISO and GSV.
For many people, these acronyms are not part of their daily life, maybe they have seen them from time to time in the companies they work or in some advertising spots. They are unknown to the general public, but fundamental to companies.
If we refer to ISO, we should mention the International Organization for Standardization, an organization founded in 1947 and composed of representatives of several national standardization organizations. ISO promotes global property, industrial and commercial standards.
When talking about BSCI we should mention the Business Social Compliance Initiative, which is also made up of companies working to improve working conditions in the global supply chain.
About GSV, this is the acronym for Global Security Verification, a supply chain security standard that is implemented by governments and customs organizations around the world.
If a company fulfills the standards promoted by these organizations and other important organizations like Accord, it will ensure the consumer good company practices.
