Code of Conduct Audit

Code of Conduct Audits

Code of Conduct Audit – A robust code of conduct should include a term that states that it is a requirement for a third-party agency, appointed by the company, to visit the Supplier or Buyer to check that they are adhering to the Code of Conduct. Goodada Inspections has provided a Code of Conduct Audit to its clients for over 15 years.

In the court of public opinion, if it is seen that a company is operating in an unfair, unjust, or unethical manner, then the company can face backlash from its customers. This can have severe consequences to a company’s image and eventually sales.
A Code of Conduct is a policy document used by a company to communicate its expectations and values concerning staff welfare, environmental impact, and social responsibility. 
Companies then issue this policy document out to their suppliers, and their customers, across their supply chain. Having its supply chain partners sign up to the policy and having their supply chain partners regularly audited by an inspection company indicates that the organization is serious about this policy and is also making its partners accountable to the policy.
Today, many large companies insist on their suppliers having a Code of Conduct Policy as part of their trading terms. Many suppliers must provide a copy of their Code of Conduct policy and provide clear evidence demonstrating that they actively ensure that their policy adheres across their own supply chains.
Many firms use Goodada’s Code of Conduct Audit services. Having a report conducted by an independent third-party Inspection company, such as Goodada inspections,  enables these firms to provide this evidence to their customers.
Since 2005, Goodada has provided Code of Conduct Audits as part of its Factory Audit Service. We provide a Factory Audit Service in over 76 countries across the world. Our trained Auditors can visit any factory to review their adherence to the code of conduct.
