Join as an Auditor

Join Sedex as an Affiliate Audit Company to develop best-practice processes for conducting audits, and create a way for the resulting data to be stored, shared and acted on through the value chain.

Auditors do not need to have a Sedex account in order to complete SMETA audits, however many choose to apply for a Sedex account to access additional benefits.

Affiliate Audit Company

Affiliate Audit Company (AAC) account holders can access the functionalities within the Sedex Advance system, allowing their auditors to manage data from multiple locations in one account.

Benefits

  • Permanent login facilities to Sedex
  • Pre-populated email address on the Sedex system, making it easier for a supplier to select you as their chosen auditor
  • Access to member self-assessment data, once you have been nominated as an audit partner of that member
  • Access to non-compliance and other data relating to audit reports uploaded by your own company
  • Central view of your own audit company’s audit data
