Here is a general overview of the Sedex audit process:
1. Membership and Registration: Companies join Sedex as members and register on the Sedex platform. Membership allows access to ethical data, collaboration with suppliers, and participation in audits.
2. Preparing for Audit: Suppliers within the Sedex network typically undergo social and ethical audits. Prior to the audit, suppliers need to prepare relevant documentation, policies, and records related to labor practices, health and safety, environmental impact, and business ethics.
3. Selection of Audit Type: Sedex audits can be of various types, including SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) audits, SA8000, or other recognized ethical audit types. The selection often depends on the industry, region, and specific requirements.
4. Audit Conduct: The actual audit is conducted by an accredited third-party audit provider. The auditor assesses the supplier's facilities, processes, and documentation against the chosen ethical standards. This may include interviews with workers, review of records, and on-site inspections.
5. Audit Report Submission: After the audit is completed, the audit provider submits a detailed report to Sedex. The report includes findings related to compliance with ethical standards, any non-conformities identified, and recommendations for improvement.
6. Sharing Audit Data on Sedex: The audit report and relevant ethical data are uploaded onto the Sedex platform. This information is made available to the member organizations that are linked to the supplier.
7. Corrective Action Plan:
If non-conformities are identified during the audit, the supplier is required to develop a corrective action plan. This plan outlines the steps the supplier will take to address and rectify the identified issues.
8. Continuous Improvement: Sedex encourages continuous improvement in ethical practices. Suppliers are expected to implement corrective actions, update their policies and practices, and undergo regular re-audits to demonstrate ongoing compliance.
9. Supplier Collaboration: Sedex facilitates collaboration between suppliers and their customers. Buyers can access audit reports and ethical data on the platform, enabling informed decisions about sourcing from responsible and ethical suppliers.
