Electronics Watch has released the Public Buyer Toolkit for affiliates

Electronics Watch has developed the Public Buyer Toolkit to support communication and promote contract compliance within its affiliates' supply chains. The Public Buyer Toolkit contains standardized and easy-to-use tools guiding affiliates and their contractors. A strong and harmonised communication process will help Electronics Watch monitor and ensure compliance with affiliates' contract conditions and code of labour standards.

Standardizing the process and tools will help contractors and companies in the affiliates' supply chains to develop internal processes for compliance with contractual obligations.

Available to affiliates the public buyer toolkit includes instruments for disclosure both for companies, to report the factories that make the goods and the main components of the goods that form the subject matter of the contract, as well as for affiliates, to report data on products procured. Templates for letters and instructions for contractors support their work on compliance. The Electronics Watch Code of Conditions and Code of Labour Standards are part of the toolkit.
