Avoid supply chain security audit duplication and operational redundancy with a Supplier Compliance Audit Network (SCAN) assessment from SGS.
One of the international supplier base’s most common complaints is the repetition of supply chain security audits. This grievance united multiple industry leaders in 2014 to identify a strategy to reduce costs and the number of such audits conducted on global suppliers and factories annually. This led to the creation of a single security audit and sharing platform for importers to conduct and evaluate shared Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism-compliant (CTPAT) supplier and factory security audits.
SCAN was developed to facilitate this strategy and establish an audit-sharing platform to help:
- Improve audit consistency
- Lower audit costs
- Reduce audit frequency
- Maintain confidentiality
US Customs and the CTPAT organization have been introduced to SCAN and acknowledged its potential benefits.
