The TMC comprises Accord brands, global trade unions, BGMEA, ILO and the Bangladesh government. It has been established by the Government for the purpose of determining when the agreed conditions for a handover of the Accord work to a fully-functional and competent national regulatory body have been met.
At its first meeting on May 6, 2018, the TMC concluded that the criteria as recognised by the government to handover the Accord work to a national regulatory body have not yet been met. The criteria include demonstrated proficiency in inspection capacity, remediation of hazards, enforcement of the law against non-compliant factories, full transparency of governance and remediation progress, and investigation and fair resolution of workers’ safety complaints.
Meanwhile, the government has formed a Remediation Coordination Cell (RCC) under inspection for factories and establishment department. The RCC will take over the responsibility of monitoring from Accord after being fully organised and capable, said Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) president Md. Siddiqur Rahman at a press conference.
The government and entrepreneurs are working jointly for making the RCC active before the end of the extended six months period of the Accord, he added. (RKS)
