Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA)




Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA)

Certificate Description

The SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) is a social auditing methodology, enabling businesses to assess their sites and suppliers to understand working conditions in their supply chain.

The audit assesses a site based on their organisation’s standards of labour, health and safety, environment and business ethics. It is designed to help auditors conduct audits encompassing all aspects of responsible business practice, and helps suppliers share one audit with multiple customers, meeting multiple customer requirements and reducing duplication and audit fatigue.

The SMETA was developed by Sedex, an ethical trade membership organisation working with businesses to improve working conditions in global supply chains.
