Technical Advisory Council

The Ethical Toy Program Technical Advisory Council (TAC) brings together responsible sourcing representatives from across the toy industry to offer guidance and support on technical issues to help the Ethical Toy Program fulfill its mission.

Direction from the TAC is also used in the development of Ethical Toy Program products and services, to ensure these deliver maximum benefits to manufacturer and buyer members.

The TAC has a direct relationship with the Ethical Toy Program through the Governing Board Oversight and Appeals Committee.

Focus of the TAC

Some key areas of focus and joint projects the TAC undertakes with the Ethical Toy Program include revising the Ethical Toy Program Audit Checklist, strengthening the auditor training curriculum, developing capability building for factories, advising on auditor integrity issues, determining clear criteria for auditing subcontractors and reviewing Ethical Toy Program policy.
