Great effort to put all these things in place!!. My kindly note the following also.

a) Many european buyers also insist displaying their trade codes in the garments factories as per their compliance standards.

b) A small correction: it is not Sexual harassment policy - But policy on prevention of sexual harassment

c) Specific american buyers also insit on records to be maintained about the training on HIV / Reproductive health and CT PAT.

d) About MSDS - It is required to be displayed in local language and english.

( Especially for thinners and colouring agents)

e) ON the emergency exits the signange to be with HIGH BEAM Lights.

f) Clutter free acess to fire extinguishers and ailes.

g) Also specific requirements to measure the light on sewing machines / floor in number of luxes.

h) Written security operating procedures for transport of lady employees in the night shift.

i) Issue of heat guards/ heat gloves for employees working on fusing machines.

j) And maintaining of registers AB and C under bonus act.

Well done and a good work. Please keep it up.

Hi Friends,

First I would like to introduce myself, I'm Chandrasekar, residing at tirupur. I'm doing my post graduation in fashion merchandising at pearl academy of fashion, chennai. I have to do a dissertation project to fulfill the requirement of my course. so i have selected a topic called "COST OF COMPLIANCE" for one factory. I need a help from you people regarding this project. Can you please help me ?

Details about the project


Objective : To know the compliance requirements of several buyers like TOMMY, A&F, ANN TAYLOR, ANIMAL, PRIMARK, TIMBERLAND, ESPRIT, Q&S, Etc and analyzing the company's status regarding the compliance and checking out the possibilities and estimate the cost of implementing the compliance.

This project helps the company to know the cost for implementing the compliance... in turn it increases the standard of the company and fetch more orders in future...

I need to know about the compliance requirements of several buyers and how to implement those compliance...

awaiting your reply. Please help me...
