DQS is approved by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) as an audit firm for its Validated Assessment Program audits. Formerly known as EICC, this alliance consists of leading global brands, who have agreed on a common code of conduct and social audit procedure in order to ensure social responsibility throughout their supply chains.

Over 150 brands participate in the RBA program, such as 3M, Apple, Dell, Tesla, Samsung, Texas Instruments, Acer, Amazon, Alphabet, and Walmart.

The RBA Code of Conduct is a set of social, environmental and ethical industry standards. The standards set out in the Code of Conduct reference international norms and standards including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO International Labor Standards, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, ISO and SA standards, and many more. While the Code of Conduct originated with the electronics industry in mind, it is applicable to and used by many industries beyond electronics.
