LOWE'S 验厂(劳氏)与Home Depot(家得宝)验厂统一审核标准

blob.png


沃尔玛接受八大标准之后,Lowe's(劳氏)近期群发邮件,告知供应商Lowe's与THD(家得宝)验厂于3月1日起统一审核标准。

在过去两年中,Lowe's与THD(家得宝)在为了避免对共同使用的工厂进行重复审核因而减少重复审核导致的审核成本的问题上,他们一起合作开发了一个名为零售商道德采购评估(“RESA”)的统一审核标准。现在,该RESA新审核模板将会对2017年3月1日当天或之后进行的所有SAE审核生效。所有Lowe's和家得宝任命第三方服务提供商在以后确认审核计划时,将确认对方是否已使用RESA模板对工厂进行过审核或者该THD审核已经安排在审核计划中,如果是,将直接获得对方审核报告的副本及所有相关的纠正措施等文件,且不再开展任何额外的SAE审核。但是,无论是哪边开展SAE审核,工厂都有义务遵守Lowe's的供应商行为准则,包括但不限于第7条收受礼物和利益和第14条反腐败等规定。

对于同时是Lowe's与THD的供货商的工厂来说,大大的利好,总算不用验了Lowe's又要验一次THD了!

Lowe's发给供应商的邮件原文如下:



Vendors,

 

At Lowe’s, we’re driven by a single purpose— to help people love where they live. As part of our purpose, we are committedto protect our brand and our corporate reputation.

 

Lowe’s Vendor Code of Conduct is thefoundation of the Lowe’s Social Accountability & Environmental (“SAE”)Program. Currently the SAE Program is executed by auditing Direct and IndirectImport Vendors’ factories and factories producing Lowe’s Private Brandedproducts sourced domestically but manufactured outside of the U.S. and Canada(Vendor is the importer of record).

 

Over the past two years, we have partneredwith The Home Depot (“THD”) and developedone single audit template named RetailEthical Sourcing Assessment (“RESA”). The goal of developing the single audittemplate is to avoid imposing the added cost of having to conduct multiple auditson THD’s and Lowe’s vendors where the same factories are being used.

 

This new RESA audit template will beeffective for all SAE audits conducted on or after March 1, 2017. At the timeof audit scheduling, please inform Lowe’s appointed 3rdparty serviceprovider if an audit conducted by THD using the RESA template is on file. Ifso, Lowe’s will obtain a copy of the audit report and all relevant correctiveactions related document from THD directly and not conduct any additional SAEaudits. Please note that as Lowe’s vendors, you are obliged to comply withLowe’s Vendor Code of Conduct during SAE audits conducted by THD or Lowe’s,including but not limited to, Section 7 – Acceptance of Gifts and Benefits,Section 14 – Anti-Corruption, and etc.

 

We are truly excited about this newinitiative as it will pave the way in reducing SAE audit fatigue at thoseshared factories.

 

Thank you for your cooperation, partnershipand support.

 

Zach Miller

VP of Quality Assurance
