Supplier Member Renewal Service

The Sedex Supplier Member Renewal Service enables an efficient and effective way to ensure your suppliers and their data are continually up to date in your database.


Your Challenge

The transparency of your supply chain decreases when your suppliers’ accounts lapse. Suppliers may be unclear about the requirement for membership renewal, leading to incomplete data for your organisation. This affects the integrity of your supply chain data analysis, reducing control of risk management and impacting your business performance. However, chasing your suppliers to renew their accounts is time-consuming and costly.

Our Solution

The Sedex Supplier Member Renewal Service overcomes the challenges arising from lapsed accounts. Our professional, multi-lingual team will engage directly with your suppliers and support them to complete the renewal process. This allows you to focus resources on other important aspects of your business.


  • The ability to run comprehensive reports identifying lapsed suppliers and where they are located.
  • Increased transparency of your suppliers’ ethical audit data, providing an overview of risk areas in your supply chain.
  • Suppliers will receive specialised guidance from the Sedex team, making the renewal process easier, and motivating them to make continuous improvements.
  • Saves you time and cost chasing suppliers up one by one.
  • Enables you to expand your ethical trade programme to all your suppliers and promote corporate social responsibility throughout your supply chain.
