As per the transition agreement, documented decisions, policies and protocols developed by the Accord will be carried over to the RSC as these have proven effective and expedient. All existing transparency features of the Accord will be maintained, including full public disclosure of inspection results and remediation activities.
Factories currently covered by the Accord shall be carried over to the RSC retaining their remediation status and any outstanding remediation requirements as per the factory’s Corrective Action Plan.
Further, all operations, staff, infrastructure, and functions of the Accord Office in Bangladesh will be transferred to the RSC. A chief safety officer will be appointed by the RSC, retaining the same independence, autonomy, authorities, and reporting requirements practiced by the Accord.
The safety and health complaints mechanism established under the Accord will also continue to operate independently and autonomously under the RSC.
An unprecedented national supply chain initiative, the RSC unites industry, brands and trade unions to ensure a sustainable solution to carry forward the significant accomplishments made on workplace safety in Bangladesh. The RSC will be governed by a Board of Directors consisting of an equal number of representatives from industry, brands and trade unions.
The RSC will operate within the regulatory framework of the laws of Bangladesh, closely cooperating with and supporting the regulatory functions of the Government of Bangladesh.
