The LIA components have been developed independently by the LIA scope committees. Experts, industry and brand representatives, as well as NGOs and standard initiatives participated in the scope committees. Their work is presented to the broader membership of the International Working Group (IWG), for feedback and final voting approval.
The objective of the IWG is to support the development of the LIA with respect to the LIA Terms of Reference. Participation in the LIA IWG is voluntary and open to all stakeholders and interested parties of the value chain. We encourage participants to sign the LIA Charter to gain the status of voting members.
LIA IWG meetings are scheduled periodically, as needed, in-person or by phone or video-conference. All members are encouraged to engage on as many calls as possible, and to join or lead committees.
