For Supplier Members

The Introduction to 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.

The China team have a Supplier System Training which gets  suppliers started at Sedex:
