The International Labour Organization (ILO) and Sedex Global have partnered to create a best practice guide to promote social compliance in Egypt.
The ILO has adopted the Sedex Workbook to train selected Egyptian suppliers in global buyer requirements. The training is a part of an ILO project that aims to strengthen respect for labour standards and improve the productivity of Egyptian exporters in the ready-made garments, textiles and food processing sectors.
The workbook is a free, publicly available document offering practical guidance to help suppliers around the world understand good practice working towards Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) and other code requirements, which the ILO and Sedex translated into Arabic.
Adnan Al Rababah, ILO’s export project manager, said: “We will continue to assist Egyptian factories in raising compliance and building systems for social dialogue in factories, in accordance with to ILO standards and global buyer requirements.”
