BESTSELLER COMMITS TO NEW ACCORD IN BANGLADESH
BESTSELLER has committed to sign the updated Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. The new Accord takes effect in May 2018 upon the expiry of the current Accord, which BESTSELLER signed in 2013.
The 2018 Accord builds on the success of the current Accord by maintaining most of its existing provisions and updating it in the light of experiences over the last four years. As a Sounding Board member BESTSELLER has taken an active part in negotiating the terms and conditions of the 2018 Accord, and we are proud to see that industry unions and brands once again can agree to collaborate on a common goal of making the Ready-Made-Garment industry in Bangladesh safe and sustainable.
