The International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Better Factories Cambodia (BFC) program will start to publicly disclose the identity of factories that persist in operating outside of Cambodian labor law and international standards starting in January.

The decision came after researchers from Stanford Law School in February released findings that concluded the BFC program had failed to improve wages and standards for workers in the garment sector. The researchers charged that the lack of transparency in the BFC program had actually set back garment industry standards for Cambodian workers, compared to their counterparts in China, Indonesia and Vietnam.
