The Industry Quality Commitment helps customers identify the companies and products that they can rely on. Through the Commitment, Accord members provide assurance that they take their responsibilities for quality, safety and the environment seriously.
Accord members must comply with the commitments outlined under the 4 Key Quality Areas:
- Public and Occupational Health & Safety
- Environmental Values
- Compliance and Continuous Improvement
- Business Ethics/ Commercial Practices
These commitments are fundamental responsibilities that are the mark of responsible companies and a responsible industry, which all Accord members would be expected to be implementing as part of their day-to-day operations.
The Accord Industry Quality Commitment also recognises that – and especially in comparison with non-member competitors – Accord membership gives companies access to the latest information on regulatory compliance and product technical, safety and environmental specifications.
