Sedex Training Calendar

In October for suppliers, we have the Management Controls at My Business webinars in Spanish and now for the first time in Portuguese. We’ll also have the supplier system training webinars from our team in China and also for the first time from our Chile team. The UK team will be hosting the Setting up your account & Managing your audits on Sedex webinars.

For buyer members, we will be running webinars on Site based risk  and Site Management which are reports that can be found within Radar (Sedex risk tool).

For all members, we have Introduction to SMETA webinars targeted for our Spanish speaking audience.

Additionally, there are Chinese language training for our supplier and buyer audience along with the SMETA for suppliers offering.

Please remember to check times and time-zones to ensure you are signing up to a session that suits you.


For Supplier Members

The Management Controls webinar, introduces the Management Controls at My Business report. This report – available to those sites who are completing an SAQ – provides an overview of the management systems at a site across the SMETA 4 pillars. This allows suppliers to identify where they are strong and where improvement is needed in their management systems.


In the Setting up your account webinar, we will show you the key steps on what to do next once a supplier has registered to Sedex.


The Managing audits on Sedex webinar, is designed to help you understand how to access and manage the audit on the Sedex platform during the various stages of an arranged audit with the audit firm.


For Buyer Members

In the Site Based Risk webinar, we will provide an explanation & demonstration of how to manage supply chain risk and single supplier site risk using the Sedex risk tool known as Radar.

The Site Management webinar, will provide an insight on how you can use this report to understand the management systems in place at your suppliers site.


The China & Chile team have the Supplier System Training which gets  suppliers started at Sedex:

Environment, Fire Safety & chemical management training

Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) is a key element of SMETA audit , but also is vital for a company’s own management system which could help provide a safe working environment for employees. This can also help companies understand the environmental impact which would be an emerging agenda in the local market. This series of EHS training will help companies (buyers or suppliers) to identify the risk, understand the local law/regulation and embed the best practices into daily operation.
