The SLCP assessment process intends to combat audit fatigue. We achieve this by providing facilities with one set of factual verified data about the social and labor conditions in their facility. This data can be widely shared and used, thus reducing the need for repetitive and duplicative audits. Facilities choose with whom to share their data. Buyers and standards can use the data set to reach their own conclusions. Resources saved through the elimination of additional social audits are redirected towards improving working conditions.
To understand the Converged Assessment Framework (CAF) and the IT system that are used for data collection and verification, we developed an e-learning program consisting of seven modules. You can sign up for this training course here, to make sure you understand the SLCP process and system and are able to complete it with confidence.
The online training course consists of seven modules. Three of these modules are key for you: Module 3 on the Data Collection Tool, Module 6 on the Gateway, and Module 7 on the Accredited Hosts. Signing up as a facility will automatically enrol you in the Facility Course and Certificate. Completing the three mentioned modules within the Course will grant you a Certificate with a CODE that can be included in your facility profile on the Gateway. Feel free to also explore the other modules on SLCP, ITC, Verification and Verification Oversight to come to a full understanding of the SLCP process and system.
For aspiring Verifiers, the online training course is the best way to prepare yourself for the Verifier Exam, the last step before being approved as a Verifier. The Verifier Course consists of seven modules that all need to be completed to get access to the Exam. Before being invited to the Verifier Course and Certificate, an aspiring Verifier needs to meet SLCP Verifier criteria. The Verification Oversight Organization (VOO) is in charge of the Verifier selection process and invites candidate Verifiers to the training if they meet the Verifier criteria.

To understand what the SLCP process and system entails, and how to support the facilities and Verifiers that actively participate in the process, the e-learning course is available for all that are stakeholders in SLCP. Brands will come to a better understanding of what is asked from facilities, and can see if all checks and balances are in place to trust the outcomes of the SLCP process. We invite all to take the course and give us their honest feedback to further improve process and system.
