ICTI CARE seeks toy industry views on programme enhancements

Published on: 3rd October 2017

ICTI CARE has announced consultation of proposed enhancements to the ICTI CARE programme.

These updates include an enhanced, graded ICTI CARE Audit Checklist, the standard against which all factories are certified, and the introduction of a new Star Rating System for ICTI CARE Certification.

Together, these updates provide a more sophisticated assessment of factory performance, helping to ensure that the ICTI CARE programme remains relevant and continues to meet the evolving needs of all stakeholders that use it.

Developed with input from ICTI’s initial consultation with programme stakeholders and an extensive benchmarking exercise, these proposals better align the programme with the evolving needs of brands, retailers and factories.

Stakeholder input is a crucial part of programme development at ICTI CARE, and all toy brands and retailers are encouraged to review the proposed updates and share any feedback.

Consultation on the proposed changes is now open and will run until 3rd of November 2017.

Full details on the proposed updates are available here.
