In the interest of transparency, SAAS assists SAI in making data available about SA8000-certified facilities. Every quarter CBs are required to submit a list of all currently certified SA8000 facilities. This list informs SAAS of any new facilities that may have been certified, and, from this data, SAAS is able to identify trends in certification across industries and countries, as well as see the number of workers that are being impacted by certification.
For further information about certified facilities, please contact SAAS directly.
Certification Statistics As of March 31st, 2013
*Stakeholders wishing to validate an SA8000 certificate may contact the issuing Certification Body directly. In compliance with accreditation requirements, all SAAS-accredited Certification Bodies are required to provide public access to the certification status of any organization.
