Consumer Goods and Retail Supplier Verification Programme
SGS’s supplier verification programme – instils confidence between clients and suppliers in a digital age.
Globalisation and the ease of international trade mean that business is increasingly being conducted electronically. Honesty and credibility play an important role in trading platforms, but in a digital age buyers and sellers may never meet, making these value judgments more difficult. Today, a verified supplier is highly valued by buyers.
We conduct on-site verification on your behalf, including:
- Legality and authenticity
- Business capacity
- Production capacity
- Quality control and management
- Service management
Suppliers who are successful at the audit stage will be ranked as ‘Gold’ or ‘Platinum’ and will be entitled to use the SGS Verified Supplier mark.
