SGS China Extends Its Verified Supplier (VS) Mark to Customers
Globalization and the ease of international trade mean that business is increasingly being conducted remotely. Honesty and credibility play an important role in trading platforms; however, it is difficult to identify honesty and integrity in an increasingly digital age, when buyers and sellers may never meet. Today, supplier verification protects the interests of all parties in trading platforms.
The SGS Verified Supplier (VS) Mark is an innovative product that verifies the authenticity of SGS suppliers in China. It was developed by the SGS China e-Com team in collaboration with SGS procurement. The SGS VS Mark is applied after an in depth assessment process and provides a stamp of approval that can be used by suppliers to promote their credentials in the marketplace.
While it was initially developed to verify the credentials of SGS suppliers in China, the VS Mark is now available globally to customers and third party organizations, so they can enhance their supplier selection processes. The mark provides a reliable way for buyers to choose their trading partners wisely and efficiently. It provides easy access to supplier credentials via a central database.
Furthermore, the VS Mark and QR Code can be used on product packaging and on electronic platforms to verify the authenticity of suppliers, providing added value to consumers seeking reassurance on the authenticity of a manufacturer or service provider.
