Webinar: Understanding SEDEX Virtual Assessment

SEDEX has introduced Sedex Virtual Assessment (SVA), a solution to provide remote assessments of sites and workplaces. Sedex Virtual Assessment is aligned with SMETA, aiming to provide as much insight into working conditions at a site as possible. Following a thorough planning stage, auditors lead a virtual site tour through the use of video technology, as well as an examination of the site’s management systems and documentation. Not all of Sedex’s Affiliate Audit Companies (AACs) are authorized to conduct Sedex Virtual Assessments. Bureau Veritas is one of the first and limited AACs approved by SEDEX to start supporting industries through this SEDEX Virtual Assessment.
