Factory group accepts and challenges report

Better Factories Cambodia (BFC) has said it will consider changes to its program following suggestions last week its garment factory monitoring reports lacked transparency.

Monitoring in the Dark, a report by Stanford Law School and the Workers Rights Consortium, said BFC was failing to listen to workers’ complaints and was not transparent when reporting labour violations.

“It is timely for the program to introduce changes in order to increase effectiveness,” a BFC statement released on Friday says.

It added, however, that the industry was more complex than the report presented.

“The students did not consult with many of BFC’s key stakeholders such as buyers, the Ministry of Commerce and others, thus the perspectives of these parties are not incorporated into the assessment.”
