The Sethi International Center for Corporate Accountability (SICCA) has undertaken an inspection commisioned by Mattel as part of its commitment to upholding its Global Manufacturing Principles (GMP) code of conduct.

The results of the inspection were mainly positive and met the standards set by the firm in 1997.

Dr. S. Prakash Sethi, chairman of SICCA, said: "Our audit showed that Mattel's facilities devote considerable attention to efficient operations, safe working conditions and employee welfare.

“Mattel's continued overall compliance demonstrates that the company and its managers in overseas factories take seriously their commitments to uphold the operational standards mandated in the GMP."

Mattel's Global Manufacturing Principles (GMP), launched in November 1997, and represent the company's commitment to responsible manufacturing practices.

Adherence to GMP seeks to ensure that wages, working and living conditions and employee access to management are just and fair, as well as to assure protection of the environment.

Mattel’s primary suppliers are also subject to compliance with the standards set.
