Abstract [en]

In many of the developing countries the working conditions are poor and unfair. Many of the clothes are bought from these countries where murder, violence and arresting of the workers are common. Neither the employers nor the employees know the laws of their countries entirely and therefore have no knowledge of fundamental rights.

The purpose of the dissertation has been to study the inspections and the compliances of the codes of conduct. Companies use codes of conduct to improve the working environment at the supplier. Furthermore, it is a contract from the company to the supplier, containing what to be expected of the supplier. The dissertation also describes what the differences are between being a member or not of the organization Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI).

The research questions were answered through interviews. The contacted companies were Swedish textile companies with suppliers in developing countries.

No noticeable differences between being a member of BSCI or not were found. Therefore, we added the last research question that contained the relationship between the selected companies and their suppliers.

A conclusion regarding the relationship can be drawn from our empirical material. A satisfactory relationship with the supplier is vital when inspecting a code of conduct. The suppliers should be an active part in the work with codes of conduct to improve them in the future.
