Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit
Decowraps produces its sleeves and various other packaging products in factories located in Colombia as well as China. As a part of our procedures for process improvement, Decowraps uses the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit, commonly known as SMETA.
SMETA is an audit procedure which compiles a list of good practices in ethical audit techniques. This procedure uses the ETI code and local law as its measurement tools.
SMETA audits are conducted against four auditing pillars: health & safety, labor standards, environment and business ethics. At Decowraps, a SMETA audit was conducted, and as a result, the SMETA Best Practice Guidance Version 5 December 2015 was applied. The scope of workers included all types at the site, including direct employees, agency workers, workers employed by service providers, and workers provided by other contractors.
