What is Sedex?

It was established in 2001 to promote convergence in social audit standards and monitoring procedures.

Sedex hopes to reduce the burden of auditing placed on suppliers and advance supply chain standards by sharing audit reports.

What is SMETA?

SMETA is a social auditing standard of Sedex that companies can use to evaluate their suppliers’ working conditions in labour, environment, health and safety, and business ethics.


Why Should Companies Conduct SMETA Audits?

The purpose of SMETA is to act as a central audit protocol, which is transparently understood by all users, enabling suppliers to share one audit with many customers.
