The current organizations are motivating their suppliers or service providers to consider the full social and ethical impacts of their corporate activities and policies.
The companies who are able to prove a responsible approach to broader social and ethical issues will gain a vital competitive edge and inspire the confidence of stakeholders such as clients, investors, local communities and consumers.
Social Concerns like child labor, forced labor and discrimination require companies to not only consider their own direct sphere of influence but also their entire supply chain.

Certification is the procedure by which individual organizations (processing plants, farms and different work environments) and associations experience appraisal by an outsider inspector. In the event that the organization meets the prerequisites set out in the standard or code, it can acquire an authentication verifying its consistence.
