问 I’m worried about the security of information on my site – how will it be kept confidential?
答 Security of all data is of paramount importance to Sedex. The servers are hosted in award winning facilities with ISO9001 and ISO27001 accreditation. System access is controlled through usernames and passwords and all data is passed through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). Within the system each Sedex member controls who can view all parts of their data using a thorough security model which can be updated at any time. This ensures you have to give specific access to another member for them to view your information. We conduct an annual penetration test which can be found on our Security page https://www.sedex.org.uk/bc/cm/site.php?root=20115
问 If I’m on Sedex, does that mean I’m an approved supplier?
答 No. Being on Sedex does not mean that a company has met any ethical standards or is in compliance with any code but it does mean you have committed to continuous improvement. Sedex holds information on ethical and responsible trade which a company has chosen to share with its customers. It is up to each customer to assess the information and to decide whether suppliers meet their own standards.
问 If I join do I have to have an ethical audit?
答 No, It is not a requirement of becoming a member of Sedex. You may wish to have an ethical audit based on your internal policy or by the request of one of your customers.
问 Can sites amend third party audit reports which are put on Sedex?
答 No. When third party auditors upload audit reports and summaries directly these cannot subsequently be altered by the sites
问 My team works with suppliers to develop action plans – how will this work with Sedex?
答 供应商们将商定的行动输入到 Sedex，然后使用系统报告他们的行动和进展情况。
