The SA8000 Performance Indicator Annex describes the minimum social accountability performance expectations for SA8000-certified organisations. Any party can use these indicators to evaluate the extent to which an organisation conforms to each of the SA8000 Standard requirements.
The SA8000 Performance Indicator Annex improves transparency of interpretive expectations among users of the SA8000 Standard and other interested parties. It helps improve consistency in interpretation and enhances understanding and appreciation of the value of SA8000 conformance. It also establishes a clear “SA8000 benchmark,” against which other social performance criteria (such as those set by buyers and other standard-setting organisations) may be cross-referenced.
