BSI’s 20+ separate proprietary risk ratings are conveniently displayed for each country in the world through global risk mapping views. For each proprietary indicator, a country is assigned a rating of Low, Guarded, Elevated, High, or Severe. This rating system allows users to quickly identify and categorize the threats to their supply chain and address them quickly. These ratings correspond to BSI’s assessment of every aspect of the supply chain, including threats such as; human rights, environmental, cargo theft, corruption, smuggling, natural and man-made disasters, and sustainability.
BSI’s risk mapping is used as the standard benchmark for many national government and corporate programs to quickly determine appropriate policies and procedures to implement for proper supply chain operations. Supplier vetting, security criteria establishment and overall risk management programs are built around BSI’s supply chain risk data. Further detail, including specific country information and trend analysis, can be accessed through BSI’s Country Risk Reports.
