RINA's response to European Center for Constitutional & Human Rights' call for criminal investigation of KiK & RINA over Pakistan garment factory fire

Author: RINA, Published on: 27 May 2014

We have no knowledge of the existence of any connection between the activities of RINA and the cause of the fire, which is currently unknown. The audit carried out more than two months before the event…did not reveal any shortcomings with regard to safety and fire prevention measures…The information and evidence collected during the audit demonstrated the availability of emergency exits, evacuation plans and fire prevention and extinction measures…The certification body is not in a position to verify day-to-day implementation of the system, and its assessment is no substitute for the enforcement of local regulations on workplace safety, which remains the responsibility firstly of the company and secondly of the local competent authorities…RINA strongly maintains that its activity did not contribute to the fire through failure to take action on safety standards.
