We work with a very wide range of manufacturers using various quality standards, depending on the type of product produced.
The main quality standards used in the merchandising industry are:
- ISO 9001 for quality management;
- SA8000 and SMETA (social accountability);
- ISO14001;2004 (environmental management); and
- ICTI (toy safety standards).
We require factories to provide proof of the above quality standards being achieved, and we maintain a register of these. Our current manufacturers provide us information about how long they have been accredited for, their next audit(s) and future renewals.
