SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has partnered with Source Intelligence, a global network and solution linking businesses together.

The partnership will provide SI customers with a one-stop solution to collect and analyse supplier compliance data as well as on-site audits and testing to further certify companies are meeting regulations, ethical sourcing objectives and sustainability initiatives. This further strengthens company’s market-leader position for supply chain data acquisition, management and validation in order to meet a growing and more complex regulatory environment.

“Source Intelligence is a great partner because we can couple their proven method to collect and analyse data, with SGS’ proven ability to validate the veracity of supplier-submitted information through on-site assessments. We continue to help companies navigate an increasingly regulated world by improving quality, safety and productivity as well as reduce their risk and brand exposure,” said Adam Whinston, North America Supply Chain Assessments & Solutions Director, SGS.

The company provides a range of solutions from supplier assessment and product and/or facility footprinting to regulatory compliance programmes that trace restricted materials, identify banned substances or locate the origin of conflict minerals.
