What Is SMETA?
SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) assesses a site based on their organisation’s standards of labour, health and safety, environment and business ethics.
SMETA audits use the ETI Base Code, founded on the conventions of the International Labor Organisation, as well as relevant local laws. SMETA audits can be conducted against 2 or 4 auditing pillars.
The 2-Pillars mandatory for any SMETA audit are Labour Standards and Health & Safety. The two additional pillars of a 4-Pillar audit are Business Ethics and Environment.
Intertek is one of the largest providers of Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audits (SMETA) conducting on-site SMETA audits at factories around the globe to assess how labour, health and safety, environmental and business ethics standards are being met. Sedex members are then allowed to store, share and report on this information in a secure, online database in an effort to improve working conditions in the global supply chain.
