Technical and social audits for the textile industry



SOCOTEC and ACTE International have signed an exclusive partnership as part of actions aimed at improving safety for textile industry workers throughout the world.

The big textile industry brands are keen to ensure good working conditions and safety for employees of their subcontractors' clothing industry plants. SOCOTEC and ACTE International are therefore combining their know-how to offer a turnkey solution.

ACTE International will carry out a social audit in the plants to assess working conditions for employees on ethical and social criteria. SOCOTEC's teams will conduct a technical analysis assessing the robustness of the buildings in use, together with fire protection measures.

The plants concerned are located throughout the world: in Europe (EU), Asia (Bangladesh, Pakistan, China, India, Vietnam, Mauritius, Turkey) and Africa (Morocco, Tunisia).
