Buyer membership helps your business to:

  • Gain visibility of your supply chain to identify and manage risk
  • Comply with modern slavery and human rights legislation
  • Work with suppliers to improve working conditions
  • Protect and enhance your business reputation
  • Reduce duplication and save time

What’s more, with over 65,000 members globally it’s likely we have many of your suppliers already sharing business information on the Sedex platform.

How much does buyer membership cost?

There are two types of buyer membership. Buyer membership is for businesses that only wish to report on their supply chain. Buyer/supplier membership is for organisations that wish to report on their supply chain, and share information with their own customers about their own business practices.

For buyer and buyer/supplier members there are two parts to the membership fee:

  • A one-off set up cost
  • An annual subscription fee

Both of these are determined by annual sales turnover. The set up cost includes training and account management support to help you get the most from your Sedex membership.
