Cross-host SLCP Assessment Overview CSV Download Guidance

What is the cross-host SLCP assessment overview CSV? 

The Social & Labor Convergence Program (SLCP) is a global apparel industry group that develops a standard-agnostic framework to collect social and labor supply chain data and drive improvements. SLCP signatories commit to using this single framework to reduce duplicative and proprietary efforts across the apparel industry. Higg is an accredited host of the SLCP’s Converged Assessment Framework (CAF). The CAF is the methodology of the Higg Facility Social & Labor Module (FSLM).

On the Higg platform, brand and retail users* can download a CSV with an overview of their facilities’ SLCP assessment status. The CSV indicates whether a facility has completed the SLCP assessment on the Higg platform or through another accredited host.This feature provides Higg users an overview of detailed reference data (metadata) of all SLCP assessments stored in SLCP Gateway, regardless of whether they are hosted on the Higg platform or another accredited host, giving them insight into their facilities’ assessment of social and labor performance.

The CSV only includes the SLCP assessment metadata.. It does not include verified assessment questions.

How can I use this feature? 

This CSV feature, exclusive to the Higg platform, supports Sustainable Apparel Coalition brand and retail members in tracking their SAC membership requirements.

Brands and retailers can use the CSV overview to review their progress toward the SAC’s Higg FSLM verification requirements.

Important Note: If a facility completes the assessment through another accredited host, it may transfer data from that host to the Higg platform by purchasing a verified FSLM.  Learn more here.

*The CSV feature is currently only available to brands and retailers. In the future it may be expanded to facility accounts. If you are a manufacturer and you are interested in this feature, please let SLCP know through https://slconvergence.org/contact/
