Canada's PSPC seeks apparel supplier's inputs on ethics
30
Nov '17
Canada
Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) has sought inputs from apparel suppliers to develop guidelines for ethical procurement. As part of the proposal, suppliers selling apparel to the government will self-certify that they and their direct Canadian and foreign suppliers comply with local laws and international standards on labour and human rights.

The rights include freedom from child labour, forced labour, discrimination and abuse, and access to fair wages and safe working conditions, according to a press release from PSPC, the Canadian Government department responsible for internal servicing and administration.

PSPC will meet with suppliers, industry associations and non-governmental organizations to discuss the self-certification requirement and current practices on ethical manufacturing and sourcing of goods throughout their supply chains.

PSPC currently requires suppliers to provide information about the apparel's country of origin. Annual apparel contracts awarded by PSPC are worth $127 million. (DS)
