Company Response

Sedex response

...Top Glove is a member of Sedex. As part of Sedex terms and conditions, we cannot disclose or discuss any information from Top Glove audits, and the data within these audits is owned by Top Glove...

SMETA... is a social audit methodology owned by Sedex, based on best practice ethical audit techniques and is used to identify noncompliance issues across labour practices, health and safety, the environment and business ethics. Businesses use SMETA to assess site working conditions, and third-party auditors are contracted to conduct SMETA audits of the sites. The audit is then uploaded onto the Sedex platform, and can be shared between the buyer and supplier, to offer visibility of working conditions on a site. While Sedex facilitates the sharing of ethical audit information on its shared platform, Sedex does not independently verify the content, or issue a pass or fail. Sedex encourages members through guidance to use outcomes of audits to improve business practices, working conditions and labour standards.
