SLCP Data Collection Tool Version Update (1.3 Version)

Higg Facility Social & Labor Module data from Social & Labor Convergence Program (SLCP) Light Operation has been updated and finalized. This data update finalizes the SLCP Higg Light Operation effort and represents a complete and accurate picture of facility and verification data.

As a part of this update, we have upgraded all Light Operation assessments from SLCP version 1.2 to SLCP version 1.3. This has no impact on the integrity of the assessment and verification, but it may alter the appearance of the verified assessment in the SLCP report when you view it through the SLCP Gateway. As a result, you may encounter any of the following:

  • There may be completely blank items, blank for both facility answers and verifier answers, because
    1. The questions did not apply to this facility, or
    2. The facility chose not to answer the question and the verifier did not verify the question, which would be a verifier mistake, or
    3. The question was not in scope of SLCP version 1.2 and therefore the facility did not answer it. To see these new questions, please check the table below. 
  • Blank answers may appear in either facility or verifier assessments. In version 1.2, SLCP did not enforce collection of data and did not facilitate improvements to quality of data through Accredited Host/Higg technology. In SLCP version 1.3, new mandatory data will be collected to avoid such mistakes, i.e. each facility and verifier must complete required answers before they can submit the assessment.
  • In some cases, completion indexes may have fallen below the required 95% level. At the time of submission, these assessments were at a completion level of 95% or more but with the SLCP data upgrade these assessments may have fallen below the threshold due to addition of new questions and mandatory data collection to the assessment.

These results may impact a subset of Higg SLCP Light Operations users but will not affect the validity or accuracy of your data.

Please access your finalized Higg Facility Social & Labor Module self-assessments and verified results through the SLCP Gateway or through your Higg.org to confirm your data is complete. Remember to grant your value chain partners permission to view your assessments.
