Have your say – survey request for small/medium businesses in the footwear industry.

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Survey

As part of the implementation strategy for the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector, the OECD is conducting a survey that targets SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) operating within the sector.

The goal  is to collect data on sourcing practices in order to identify pragmatic approaches to implementing due diligence that are tailored to their size, resources, nature of business, and sourcing models.

The survey aims to target agents, brands, licensees, manufacturers, retailers, and wholesalers and is divided into 3 sections: company characteristics; company sourcing practices and due diligence.

BFA members are invited to complete the survey here and/or participate in a short interview with the OECD to talk about the key areas relating to SMEs.

N.B Participants are not required to identify themselves or their organisation and all responses will be confidential. The findings will only be reported in aggregate form or in a manner that does not allow individual responses to be identified. Answers should be submitted by 31st January 2020

For further information and to set a date and time for a short interview please contact Julia Delvalle
