Social and Labor Convergence Program Verification (SLCP)

SLCP verification confirms the entirety and accuracy of your assessment data to precisely reflect your social responsibility. | TÜV Rheinland

Reliable assessment with authorized SLCP verification

Working in diverse cultural, economic and political landscapes throughout the world, the apparel and footwear industry has traditionally been required to undergo costly, time-consuming and repetitive social audits to meet varying regulations and standards. The Social and Labor Convergence Program (SLCP) is a non-profit initiative established to provide a systematic assessment and verification process for stakeholders throughout global value chains.

As a recognized Verifying Body (VB), we are authorized to provide verification of your assessment data collection results. Our experts are on-site to review your corporate social responsibility and the effectiveness of its implementation. We help you ensure reliable social compliance and impact assessments according to the SLCP Converged Assessment Framework (CAF) measuring both the social and labor aspects of your facility.

SLCP allows responsible suppliers, manufacturers, brand representatives and other industry stakeholders to redirect time and resources spent on duplicative social assessment toward improving workplace conditions and ensuring fair, safe and gainful employment. Our multi-disciplinary team of accredited SLCP verifiers can help you demonstrate your corporate commitment to excellence for added trust and respect among your business partners.

Ensure acceptable social and labor practices with SLCP verification!

Efficient and effective with verified SLCP assessment

SLCP assessment aims to reduce resources spent on repetitive audits, provide a comparable data set and promote stakeholder collaboration. | TÜV Rheinland
SLCP assessment process

SLCP assessment offers a practical alternative to differing proprietary tools used in repetitive audits used for a single purpose. Spending less time and money for multiple social audits allows you to redirect your efforts and resources to effectively impact working conditions and practices within your facility. Verified SLCP data can be shared to provide you more opportunity for greater comparability of the social and labor data of your business partners worldwide. Our authorized verification services help you underscore your social responsibility, maintain good labor practices and strengthen your company reputation to ensure a sustainable and profitable future.
