Ethical standards and ISO 9001

Our company has a compliance standard, that are equivalent to the BSCI ethical standard points. If a supplier has an ISO 9001 standard, do they cover the same ethical standards as BSCI? Or do you have advise where I could learn about the criteria that ISO 9001 covers in regards of ethical standards?

Answer:

ISO 9001 does not cover ethical standards as BSCI. While Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a initiative made for companies who want to improve the working conditions in the global supply chain, ISO 9001 stablish the requirements for products, services and systems, to ensure quality and efficiency.

However, a quality oriented company will definitely meet more ethical standards than the organizations who could less care about quality. Company ethics must be reflected in the quality policy and objectives stablished by the organization, so this would be a good place to look in order to seek for the specific working ethics of a company.
