Whilst this potentially `dynamic` International Standard, scheduled for publication in 2008, is currently being launched by the International Organisation for Standardisation, the ethical issues of Socially Responsible Management Accountability has for many years been a mandatory marketplace compliance requirement for Global customers selecting International Suppliers.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a reflection of the socio-economic setting is now a recognised credential for successful and well respected organisations. Business Social Investments, deploying resources allocated to Social programmes, are targeted to return both strategic, social and economic benefits for Internal & External stakeholders.

The majority of ethical importers now demand Products & Services are purchased from supply chains clearly evidencing SRMA good practices.

Many high profile buying organisations, especially for the USA market, undertake their own mandatory SRMA compliance audits upon suppliers and often require their supply chain to become registered to recognised Socially Responsible Management schemes.

SRMA compliance adopts International & National Laws together with International Labour Organisation conventions addressing key topics such as Child Labour, Forced Labour, Education, Sanitation, Discrimination, Freedom of Association, Working Hours, Remuneration and Disciplinary Practices.

The constituents of robust SRM systems integrate effectively into the corresponding elements of ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 Safety & Health Management explained within 2K's web site.
