Social Policy set out in writing must be expressively addressed to the employees and must be communicated to all employees in relevant languages. It is also recommended to attach them to each employee’s contract. This communication requirement can be fulfilled by posting the BSCI Code of Conduct A3 format in local language. In countries where the BSCI has an operational Complaint Mechanism, it is obligatory for the company. The auditor will verify that the posted code of conduct includes the hotline telephone and e-mail addresses and is conspicuously posted through the facility.

Legally permissible disciplinary measures normally have an escalating character (verbal reprimand, transfer to another department, temporary suspension, dismissal).
Serious breach of working rules (e.g. theft, use of force, sexual harassment and abuse), may normally be sanctioned immediately by the highest levels of disciplinary measures (detailed information to be taken from the relevant national legal regulations). Legally permissible disciplinary measures are to be applied on a basis of equality to all employees. Any violations and disciplinary measures must be recorded.
Alternatively, it is possible for the working rules to refer to legal regulations covering disciplinary measures.

B.1.10. 2856420 Is there satisfactory evidence that the company has established and maintained appropriate procedures to recruit subcontractors based on their ability to meet the BSCI requirements? This question is only applicable if the supplier used subcontractors in the last 12 months or plans to use them in the near future.
Experience shows that working conditions in the production facilities of subcontractors are often particularly problematic. This is associated with rejection of responsibility for the working conditions in such production facilities by Companies.The BSCI assumes that Companies share responsibility for such working conditions, regardless of whether these are their own production sites or the production sites of subcontractors. This co-responsibility has the effect of a «snowball system» for the BSCI participants, working through the Company and its own production sites and continuing this effect on the Company’s subcontractors.
The Company therefore has to exercise a minimum of duties of care and attention, with respect to the selection, management and monitoring of its subcontractors.
The auditor shall verify that the company has established mechanisms to:
– select current and future subcontractors taken into consideration not only by price and quality, but also by social performance capability with respect to the BSCI requirements.
– verify current present and future subcontractors’ social performance. These verifications shall be conducted by qualified persons of the Company or by third parties mandated to conduct the check.

The Company can meet these requirements by various measures, e.g., by regular inspections by competent employees of its own, implementation of an internal monitoring system with training and checks, or inspection of subcontractors by external experts.
Requirement by the Company for the subcontractors to present their own Social Audit Report in accordance with the BSCI always meets the requirements, but is not obligatory. However, this will reduce the Company’s own inspection effort.
