Additional Information
In the interest of transparency, SAAS assists SAI in making data available about SA8000-certified organisations. Every quarter CBs are required to submit a list of all currently certified SA8000 organisations.  This list informs SAAS of any new organisations that have been certified, and, from this data, SAAS is able to identify trends in certification across industries and countries, as well as see the number of workers that are impacted by certification. 

This public list is intended for verification of SA8000-certification and does not include the organisation's contact information.  The list includes those that have been reported to SAAS as currently certified. In response to the expectations of SA8000 users, beginning in March 2017, the certified organisation's list shows those organisations that are currently and were formerly certified, plus additional certification details, in addition to information previously included. We hope stakeholders find this useful. For further information about the status of certified organisations, please contact SAAS directly

Stakeholders wishing to validate an SA8000 certificate may contact the issuing Certification Body directly. In compliance with accreditation requirements, all SAAS-accredited Certification Bodies are required to provide public access to the certification status of any organization.

All stakeholders in receipt of an SA8000 certificate seeking to confirm its validity may download the list directly, as above, or view the certificate itself to see if it was issued by one of the accredited certification bodies.  In addition, accredited SA8000 certificates contain an accreditation mark issued by SAAS.
