RSC: Status of the Safety and Health Complaints Mechanism in Bangladesh

May 31, 2022

Safety and Health Complaints Mechanism

On 1 June 2020, the functions of the Accord Office in Bangladesh transitioned to the RMG Sustainability Council (RSC). The RSC inherited all operations, staff, infrastructure, and functions of the Accord Office in Bangladesh; and continues with factory inspections, remediation monitoring, and workplace program. This means that from 1 June 2020 onwards, signatories to the International Accord have agreed to fulfill their commitments in Bangladesh through their participation in the RSC.

You can find the Occupational Safety and Health Complaints Mechanism at the Accord-covered factories on the website of the RSC here.
