ICTICareICTI CARE currently seeks consultation of proposed enhancements to its program. These updates include an enhanced, graded ICTI CARE Audit Checklist—the standard against which all factories are certified—and the introduction of a new Star Rating System for ICTI CARE Certification.

These updates provide a more sophisticated assessment of factory performance, helping to ensure that the ICTI CARE program remains relevant and continues to meet the evolving needs of all stakeholders that use it. Developed with input from our initial consultation with program stakeholders and an extensive benchmarking exercise, these proposals better align the program with the evolving needs of brands, retailers, and factories.

ICTI CARE now encourages all toy brands and retailers to review the proposed updates and share any feedback here. Consultation on the proposed changes is now open and will run until Nov. 3.
