Nirapon asked to join RMG Sustainability Council for safety monitoring

A local factory building and fire safety monitoring organization Nirapon was issued a rule by the High Court, asking Nirapon to explain why it should not be ordered to join the RMG Sustainability Council – a tripartite compliance and safety monitoring body – and to establish a common standard for safety monitoring of RMG sector. The HC gave 2 weeks to explain this.

This has come to light recently when the Supreme Court maintained a High Court order that delivered a ban on inspection and training activities of Nirapon.

Led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, a five-member bench of the Appellate Division of the SC terminated a petition filed by Nirapon challenging the HC order.

After a writ petition filed by Dragon Sweater Bangladesh Limited, the HC on October 22 imposed a six-month ban on the inspection and training activities of Nirapon – a local entity formed with the backing of 23 North American apparel brands and retailers.

Barrister Imtiaz Moinul Islam, a lawyer for Dragon Sweater Bangladesh Limited informed the media, “Nirapon, has no permission from Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA) to operate in Bangladesh. And the HC is scheduled to hold a hearing on the rule on December 11.”
