AEPC releases draft compliance code on child labour
Jul '10
Last year, the US government had included India in the Executive Order 13126 List (EOL) and Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorisation (TVPRA) list of the US Labour Department, which relates to using child labour in its industries.

The list is up for review again in September and the Indian apparel exporters are wary of being included in the list once again. An apex garment exporters' body has released a draft of a common compliance code among its members.

The Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) has circulated a draft of common compliance code of 'dos and dont's' within members, which is expected to be finalized within the next two months. Along with which there are also guidelines to follow environmentally-friendly practices.
