The Accord

The International Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh

To date the Accord has concluded fire, electrical and structural inspections in more than 1400 factories resulting in more than 700 CAPs. Since IC Companys signed the Accord in 2013 we have supported our suppliers in working with the Accord. Our suppliers in Bangladesh have been inspected by the Accord and we are working with them to make sure that the corrective action plans are implemented. The inspections showed critical flaws that could not be remediated with one of our suppliers and unfortunately we consequently had to move our production to another factory.
