Efforts have begun to recruit both the Chief Safety Inspector and the Executive Director, both of whom will report directly to the Accord Steering Committee. Factory data from all company signatories will be collected by July 15, along with details about each factory building. An aggregated list of all covered factories under the Accord will be publicly disclosed.

The legal structure to administer the Accord will be a Foundation established in the Netherlands and with an office in Bangladesh. The six executive members of the Steering Committee have been elected.

Members include officials of IndustriALL Global Union, UNI Global Union and the Bangladesh Council of Trade Unions as well as representatives of signatory companies: Inditex, N.Brown Group and PVH Corp. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has designated a senior representative to serve as chair person.

An Advisory Board which includes representatives of the Bangladesh government, as well as suppliers, brands, local trade unions and NGOs, will be established. The Advisory Board, which will be chaired by an ILO representative, is vital to ensure a strong link to local stakeholders and the National Action Plan.

A delegation of the Steering Committee will visit Bangladesh at the end of July to meet with local stakeholders to discuss their role in implementing the Accord and to establish working relationships. The Steering Committee would like to give its thanks for the hard work of the Implementation Team over the last 45 days to lay out the Implementation Plan.

The Implementation Team consisted of IndustriALL Global Union, UNI Global Union, Clean Clothes Campaign, Worker Rights Consortium, Aldi, C&A, Inditex, N Brown, Otto Group and PVH Corp.
