Certification is a process by which individual companies (factories, farms and other workplaces) and organizations undergo evaluation by a third-party auditor. If the company meets the requirements of the standard or code, it can obtain a certificate of compliance. Third-party certification involves an independent assessment that the specified requirements for a product, person, process, or management system have been met. Social Accountability International provides tools, information and resources related to the SA 8000: 2014 standard on its website. All organizations interested in implementing the SA 8000:2014 standard should consult their website and download the available information.
To certify compliance with SA 8000: 2014, every establishment wishing to be certified must be audited. In this way, auditors will visit companies, evaluate the company's practices on a wide range of issues, and evaluate the state of the company's management systems, which are necessary to ensure the sustainability of acceptable practices. Once an organization implements the necessary reforms, it can obtain a certificate of compliance with SA 8000:2014. The list of currently certified organizations is available on the GG Certification website.
