19,000 audited suppliers for potential mutual recognition of audits

AIM-PROGRESS is proud to announce that its shared list of suppliers audited by member companies to the common benchmark of the SMETA 4-pillar audit protocol has grown to 19,000 audited supplier records. These are available to participating members to request a copy of the most recent audit in view of mutual recognition, rather than initiating a new audit. It remains the decision of the supplier to share an audit or not. Mutual Recognition of audits is one of the main pillars of AIM-PROGRESS. The concept is being tested for "other things" which can potentially be mutually recognised, including a pilot with EcoVadis on supplier assessments.
