Discover our Sedex services

Retailers, brands and customers are increasingly concerned that their goods are manufactured in a way that ensures fair treatment for all workers involved in their production supply chain. One way companies can get assurance about their suppliers’ performance is by requesting a third-party Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA) to report on processes and the situation.

The benefits include:

  • SMETA audit reports reduce supply chain audit duplication by providing a widely accepted single format for social compliance audits
  • SMETA audit reports are uploaded to the Sedex Advance platform, enabling members to effectively share and manage ethical supply chain information
  • Reduce social responsibility and sustainability risks in supply chains
  • Identify weak areas for companies to implement corrective actions that drive improvement and mitigate risk
  • When it is impossible for auditors to visit a site, SGS can deliver a Sedex Virtual Assessment (SVA)

Why SMETA services from SGS?

We are a Sedex Affiliate Audit Company (AAC). Sedex is home to one of the world’s leading collaborative platforms for buyers and suppliers to store, share and report on ethical and social audit information, quickly and easily.
