13 November 2017

The Accord has removed the Smart Group RMG factories from the list of terminated suppliers in accordance with a recent interim Order of the High Court Division of Bangladesh.

Smart Group was terminated by the Accord in April 2016 for falsifying concrete strength test results to report higher than actual strength. After termination, Smart Group initiated legal proceedings which are now pending hearing before the High Court Division of Bangladesh.

2 similar cases were filed in the Dutch Courts by a joint venture partner of Smart Group. The Dutch Courts denied the petitioners’ claims in both of these cases.
