March 19th Webinar to Introduce ICTI CARE Process Compliance Tool

March 5, 2013 | The International Council of Toy Industries (ICTI) CARE Process (ICP) is a single, fair, thorough and consistent program that monitors toy factories’ compliance with ICTI’s Code of Business Practices and promotes fair labor treatment and employee health and safety throughout the supply chain.

TIA was the first national toy association to require all of its members to participate in the ICTI CARE Process.

On Tuesday, March 19th, an ICTI CARE training webinar will provide U.S. toy companies with a better understanding of how to follow the ICTI CARE Seal of Compliance approval process and improve the overall ethical performance of the toy industry.

Specifically, the ICTI CARE Foundation has engaged Enablon, a leader in sustainability performance management software, to power a platform that will help brands and retailers get real-time visibility on their supplier’s performance and level of compliance. The platform provides the ability to track audit and corrective action plan progress, certification status and level of each factory registered in the ICP.

The session is recommended specifically for those responsible for tracking the audit and corrective action plan progress of your company if registered in the ICTI CARE Program (ICP).

The free webinar, which will begin at 12 p.m. (Eastern) / 9 a.m. (Pacific), will be presented by Christian Ewert, President of ICTI CARE, and members of the Enablon team, who will provide details about the service, which will be available to Date Certain committed companies based on a scale of modest fees depending on company-size and degree of detail desired.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The benefits are of joining this select group of users;
  • Details about the registration and payment processes; and
  • A live demo of the three levels of access platforms


For a better grasp on the subject, interested participants are encouraged to visit the ICTI CARE Foundation website that contains background information on the topics that will be discussed in greater depth during the webinar.

An additional webinar that will be scheduled in late April will have a more comprehensive overview of the ICTI CARE Foundation program and what the ICTI CARE Process (ICP) is doing to improve the ethical standards of the worldwide toy industry; webinar details will be available soon on the TIA Website.
