Members are required to apply appropriate ethical standards in the factories used for the manufacture of toy products.

Members declare compliance with the principles contained in the ICTI Code of Business Practices;

The ICTI CARE (Caring, Awareness, Responsible, Ethical) Process is the programme to promote ethical manufacturing, in the form of fair labour treatment, as well as employee health and safety, in the toy industry supply chain worldwide. Its initial focus is in China, where 80 percent of the world’s toy volume is manufactured. Its intent is to provide a single, fair, thorough and consistent program to monitor toy factories’ compliance with ICTI’s Code of Business Practices (the “Code”).”

It is the intention of BTHA members in relation to toy products to have those products manufactured by factories that are in the ICTI CARE Process* or by factories that meet the requirements of i) another recognised social compliance organisation or ii) another code of an equivalent or greater standard.

* The ICTI CARE Process has been designed to meet the specific needs of the toy industry in ensuring that products are sourced from factories that meet appropriate ethical standards
