The ETI Base Code

ETI member companies agree to adopt or incorporate our Base Code, and must require that their suppliers meet the provisions of that Code within a reasonable timeframe.

The ETI Base Code was the result of negotiations between trade unions, NGOs and business in 1998. It is based on Conventions of the International Labour Organisation, the oldest United Nations body and the only one with representatives from governments, business and trade unions.

The Ethical Trading Initiative is an alliance of companies, non-governmental organisations and trade union organisations committed to working together to identify and promote good practice in the implementation of codes of labour practice.
