SMETA
SEDEX MEMBERS ETHICAL TRADE AUDIT
 

 

SEDEX

Insite Compliance is an Affiliate Audit Company of SEDEX.

SEDEX is a not-for-profit membership association that is dedicated to driving improvements in ethical and responsible business practices throughout global supply chains. SEDEX Advance is a collaborative platform where SMETA Audit Reports and Corrective Action Plan Reports (CAPR) are stored, making it easy for suppliers to share audit reports with multiple customers.

SMETA

SMETA is an agreed-to auditing protocol that is based on the Ethical Trading Initiative code and local law.

Insite SMETA audits assess labor, health and safety, environmental and business ethics standards at factories around the world. Also assessed during a SMETA are suppliers' understanding and management of Human Rights.

CHOOSING YOUR AUDITING FIRM

SMETA audits conducted by Insite are accepted by major brands including The Walt Disney Company.

To ensure that a SMETA audit was conducted by an experienced auditor a number of companies will only accept SMETA from a select group of firms. It is recommended that suppliers seeking to meet the requirements of two or more companies confirm upfront that their customers will accept the SMETA from their chosen auditing firm.

INSITE PROGRAM MANAGERS ARE AVAILABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SMETA PROCESS.
