Every 5 years, SAI conducts a revision of the SA8000 Standard, drawing on multi-stakeholder input and resulting in a new version of the standard. The most recent standard revision took place in 2013-2014.
SA8000:2014 Drafters’ Notes
The SA8000:2014 Drafters’ Notes were prepared in consultation with the Standard Revision Committee of the SAI Advisory Board. They provide background information on and explanations of the SA8000: 2014 revision process. They are useful to read in conjunction with the SA8000:2008 Drafters’ Notes, which provide information about the changes made at that time.
