CAPS-260:2020 - Social Decency Standard

There has been a great need for social certifications in almost all industry sectors because

  • There are only a few private schemes in this area and still not quite accessible for small and medium sized organisations
  • Prices of these private schemes are too high for small sized organisations.
  • Only a few of certification bodies are approved by these schemes.
  • ISO 26000 is intended for guidance only. The standard describes itself "not-suitable" for certification.

So, AGFO has developed CAPS-260:2020 which is composed of the following elements

  • Core elements of ILO conventions and ISO 26000 standard
  • Additional requirements of CAPS
  • Certification requirements to make it suitable for certification:

AGFO has gained ISO/IEC 17065:2012 accreditation for CAPS-260:2020.
