SMETA AUDIT Romana English Facebook

What is SMETA?

SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) is a compilation of best practices in ethical audit, established by the Sedex Associate Auditor Group (AAG). It is not a separate standard or certification process, but a set of protocol for high-quality audits, to be used in conjunction with current established ethical audit practices. SMETA was designed to minimize duplication of effort and provide AAG members with an audit format they could easily share. SMETA reports are published by the Associate Auditor Group members in the SEDEX system, ensuring transparency and efficient information sharing.

The SMETA Audit Methodology

SMETA audits use the ETI Base Code, founded on the conventions of the International Labour Organization, as well as relevant local laws. SMETA audits can be conducted against two or four auditing pillars. The two pillars mandatory for any SMETA audit are Labor Standards and Health & Safety. The two additional pillars of a 4-pillar audit were introduced to further deepen the social responsibility aspect of SMETA audits.

A SMETA 2-pillar audit comprises the following modules:

• Labor Standards
• Health and Safety
• Additional Elements:
o Management Systems
o Entitlement to Work
o Subcontracting and Homeworking
o Environmental assessment (shortened)

A SMETA 4-pillar audit covers the above elements, plus:

• Environmental assessment (extended)
• Business Ethics
