Apparel factory owners in Bangladesh are concerned over a recent decision by the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh that it will not accept some of the inspection reports done by members of its rival group, the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety.
Duplication of factory inspections was one of the major worries of apparel manufacturers when the two groups were formed last year following the building collapse at Rana Plaza in Dhaka, which claimed the lives of 1,133 people. Initially the two organizations said they would each respect the other’s inspection reports, but the accord’s recent statement indicates otherwise.
