Recently the government and Department of Inspection for Factories and Establishments (DIFE) started holding meetings with the factory owners on evaluation progress and asked for removing all the safety faults in the units by April 2018.


DIFE Inspector General Shamsuzzaman also said, “We are currently monitoring the remediation of 780 factories, which are under the government initiative”.

According to DIFE, Bangladesh government supported by the International Labor Organization (ILO), formed another platform – the National Initiative (NI) – for RMG factories that were not part of the Accord and Alliance to improve their safety standards. A total 1,549 garment factories beyond the Accord and Alliance inspections had been inspected by the National Initiative (NI).
