SA8000 Opens for New Certifications in Pakistan

Social Accountability International has authorized the certification of new organizations to the SA8000® Standard in Pakistan. The SA8000 system is now open for new Pakistan-based applicants for the first time since November 2012. Certification bodies that wish to conduct SA8000 activities in this country must apply for accreditation with Social Accountability Accreditation Services (SAAS).

The latest version of the SA8000 Standard, launched in 2014, includes strengthened requirements for accredited certification bodies that conduct SA8000 audits as well as for organizations applying for certification. All new certifications to the SA8000 Standard are based on SA8000:2014 and related policies, procedures, and requirements.
