The 2nd Stakeholder' Consultation / AEPC Stakeholder Forum meet convened on January 20, 2013. The second stakeholder consultation was organized to discuss and consult the DISHA facilitation programme methodology being implemented in Garment Manufacturing Factories in India.

The meeting was presided-over by Shri V. Srinivas, IAS, Jt. Secretary (Exports), Ministry of Textiles. Chairman AEPC Dr. A Salthivel, Ashok Logani, Chairman DISHA Sub- committee,  Mrs Manisha Sinha, Director Exports, Ministry of Textiles, Shri  H K Jethi, Director Ministry of Labour, Labour Commissioner of States, Brands, Buying Houses, NGOs, Trade Union, Accreditation Agencies, Compliance consultants,  exporters were also present in the meeting.

AEPC launched the Driving Industry towards Human Capital Advancement (DISHA) programme in December 2011, under the aegis and support of the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India to support the Indian apparel industry in addressing some of the concerns and challenges. AEPC is supporting the development of a code of conduct along with a guideline and self-assessment tool as Indian apparel industry's self-regulatory initiative under the DISHA programme - Common Code of Conduct.

During the First Stake Holders Forum we have discussed and shared the code and other tools to the stakeholders of the Indian apparel industry to seek their feedback for effective and desired impact of the DISHA programme.

AEPC DISHA has undergone a significant change since its inception. Now the focus is on transferring the ownership and control based on the participatory engagement and owning the responsibility of implementing the DISHA- CCC (Code of Conduct). The DISHA tool kit has been handed over to the DISHA champions who are from the employee pool manager level staff of the factories.

The DISHA team regularly monitors the developments after they have gone through the TOT/ training and implementation sessions. Ministry officials also from time to time visit these factories to see the intent and resolve of implementation of DISHA codes.

Speaking on the forum Dr. A Sakthivel Chairman AEPC stated that, “The first Roundtable of the Stakeholders initiated the process for the formation of this Forum. The Forum discussed the most important initiative being taken by AEPC for meeting and managing compliance challenges in the work place – DISHA.”

“We invite everyone who would like to contribute towards development of a comprehensive framework for managing compliance challenges, in this context. Recognizing the need for providing a multi-stakeholder platform to exchange perspectives, voices and concerns as well as seek assistance and contribution of various stakeholders of the apparel industry towards developing strategies to address compliance challenges AEPC DISHA respects all suggestions and feedbacks”, he added.

Chairman AEPC further informed that, during the first Stakeholders Consultation, Questionnaires were circulated to all participants in order to get institutional response of various stakeholders on their perception of the compliance challenges faced by the apparel industry and their expectations from DISHA to meet their challenges.
