Types of SEDEX audit
There are two types of an audit that can be performed under SMETA. They are SMETA 2 pillar audit and SMETA 4 pillar audit. The 2 pillar audit involves labor standards and health & safety. It entails about conforming to the environmental requirement based on the law of a particular place. The SMETA 4 pillar audit focuses on the business and environment integrity.
The type of audit that is selected by the client determines the audit that is performed. Companies that are not members of SEDEX are also encouraged to use this audit procedure. With this procedure, we are dedicated to offering a SMETA auditing service to promote transparency, a corrective action plan format, and a common audit plan format.
