We have a great deal of experience in performing SMETA ( SEDEX) audits, ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative) audits, and customer specific social compliance audit programs for many well-known retailers, brands and fast food chains.
Since 2016 we have focused on helping companies prove due diligence to the UK Modern Slavery Act which frequently involves tracing the supply chain into Asia or Eastern European countries. We interact with government authorities and NGO’s to ensure we lead the way in this field. We also specialize in Labour Provider audits, partnering with the relevant bodies in this field.
Verisio is a long-serving member of the Sedex Stakeholder Forum (previously known as the Associate Auditor Group). We strongly support the development of the recently formed Association of Professional Social Compliance Auditors
All our auditors are registered with IRCA , the International Register of Certificated Auditors (www.irca.org) and hold relevant professional qualifications as Lead Auditors for social compliance auditing (SA8000/ SSLAC) and quality (ISO 9001). In the area of food, auditor certifications are primarily BRC and HACCP. We also work closely with the Aquaculture Stewardship Council.
