Most of the companies nowadays are concerned about the social accountability of the practices that are adopted in the company premises. In order to ensure that the companies provide the best working environment for their employees, there are some regulations developed for the companies to be applicable in the company premises. The SA 8000 is one such standard that is used by companies all over the world for evaluation of the social acceptability of the work practices in the company. The SA 8000 certification is used for defining a common language between the businesses to measure the social accountability. The standard was developed by The SAI or Social Accountability International. The SA 8000 certificate can be granted to any company regardless of the type of work it is involved in or the size of the organization. The standard has been proved to be a very powerful tool in providing a pleasing working environment to the employees all over the world.

The fundamental principles of SA 8000 have the norms of the International Human Rights commission. In addition to that, there is a declaration of Universal human rights and international labor organization norms are also included in the system. The company that applies for SA 8000 accreditation, it is evaluated for eight major areas during the SA 8000 certification process that includes Child labor in the company, health, and safety of employees, free association of the workers, disciplinary practices, working hours, forced labor, discrimination, and collective bargaining.
