Supplier Vetting

To manage suppliers within a multiple site and sub-contracting environment, clients are required to do all that is reasonable and practicable to protect the health and safety of the collective workforce. NOSA’s Supplier Vetting System (SVS) is a third party, independent accreditation programme that assesses suppliers’ conformance to international best practices and responsible supply chain management. The supplier vetting system is a leading health, safety, environment, quality, and social accountability assessment tool, providing an integrated software solution to organisation-wide risk management.

SVS is compatible with various industry standards and can be extended on a modular basis beyond the realms of health and safety legal compliance. Clients are able to customise audit protocols to suit company operations and to manage organisation-wide risk management and supply chain policies, including, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, SA 8000, all NOSA system standards and FSSC22000. NOSA’s SVS provides not only the software system for vetting suppliers but also a comprehensive document review process and work-site compliance audit. Our qualified auditors take the industry sector and business size into consideration, thus providing tailored audits specific to the supplier’s risk profile.
