Two B'desh RMG factories complete remediation work
Jun '15
The Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh (also called the Accord) has announced its engineers have recently verified the successful completion of all remediation requirements stemming from the Accord initial inspections at two garment factories in Bangladesh, it said in a statement. The first two factories to achieve this milestone are Concord Fashion Export Ltd.and Jeacon. Both of these factories are located in the same building in Dhaka.

Accord has applauded the efforts of the factory owners and managers, the relevant Accord company and union signatories, the workers in these factories, and the Accord engineering and case handler staff who contributed to the completion of this work.

“As we recognize these achievements and prepare to verify additional factories which have reported all remediation items completed, the Accord remains vigilant in accelerating the pace and level of remediation at the large number of Accord inspected factories where execution of the remediation is inadequate or too far behind schedule,” it said.

Nearly two years to the date after the signing of the Accord, completion and Accord verification of all initial remediation at these two inspected factories is a powerful indicator that the Accord is making a difference and that RMG factories producing for Accord company and retailer signatories are becoming safe.

The Accord was signed on May 15, 2013. It is a five year independent, legally binding agreement between global brands and retailers and trade unions designed to build a safe and healthy Bangladeshi RMG Industry. The agreement was created in the immediate aftermath of the Rana Plaza building collapse that led to the death of more than 1100 people and injured more than 2000. In June 2013, an implementation plan was agreed leading to the incorporation of the Bangladesh Accord Foundation in the Netherlands in October 2013. (SH)
