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.
