Legal compliance: At the issue level, demonstrate the requirements of International Labour Standards (ILS) and National Labour Laws (NLL).

Attention: Do not stop after viewing the validation summary! The factory must conduct a comprehensive review of the report to ensure that it includes all relevant and important data, especially the data requested by the end user.

Approved validated evaluation
