ICTI CARE Process Audit Fee
ICFAL Announces New Fee Schedule (Effective 1st Jan, 2013)

The ICTI CARE Process has made much progress, achieving an active participation of over 2,500 factories since its inception in 2003. To ensure that our program and the related factory monitoring system maintain the highest quality, we are constantly investing in improvements to our systems and procedures and to the capabilities of our accredited auditors. Only in this way can we support our factories as they strive to achieve higher levels of social compliance. We last reviewed our fees 3 years ago and, after careful evaluation, find we need to adjust our fees now.

Effective 1st January 2013, the non-refundable fees charged by the ICTI CARE Process social compliance program and the audit man day fee charged by the ICP accredited audit firms will be revised.

有关新收费的详细执行内容,己附于此备忘录第二页的(1) 新收费标准 和 (2) 适用条件。
Two supplementary informational notes (1) New Fee Schedule and (2) Terms and Conditions are attached to this Announcement to explain this new policy in detail.

With this new fee schedule, we can continue to put focus our effort on advancing the ICP program and policies, to achieve broader recognition by brands and retailers. We will also provide quicker feedback and more direct communication channels by hosting additional toy association “Open Days” and Seminars. The new fee schedule is simpler as it no longer differentiates between small and large factories.

At the same time we are pleased to inform you that we will launch the ICTI CARE Process Participant Support Program (PSP) among brands, retailers and licensors to fund our future education and training activities.

We want to thank you for your past and continuing support that has enabled us to form together a better social accountability system in our industry. It is only with your continuous support that we will be able to build a better ICTI CARE Process.
