SDV Australia (Perth office) recently renewed its Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (Sedex) compliance, as a registered member of the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA). SDV Perth successfully met with the strict requirements at the demand of one of its valued customer to ensure that all products were handled according to the best ethical compliance possible.
SMETA has a secure, online database which allows members to store, share, and report on information in four key areas, namely: Labor Standards, Health & Safety, the Environment, and Business Ethics.
Other SDV countries already in possession of the Sedex and SMETA ethical compliance include: SDV China, SDV Hong Kong, SDV Singapore, SDV Malaysia, SDV South Korea, and SDV Japan.
As a QHSE strong and oriented company, SDV constantly assures its customers, business partners, and employees that we will be responsible to meet all international standards and/or requirements.
