Auditors do not need to be Sedex members in order to complete SMETA audits, however many choose to become a member to access additional benefits.
There are three ways an auditor can use the Sedex system:
To use the Sedex system an independent auditor needs to contact the Sedex Customer Service Desk in order to set up an account under their name and email address. Once that has been done, the site which is commissioning the audit will need to send an audit upload request to the newly created Independent Auditor account.
Find out more about the benefits of being an Independent Auditor on the Sedex system on the Auditor memberships page.
