Retail, apparel and footwear supply chain concerns

The retail, apparel, and footwear sectors rely heavily on their global suppliers for the manufacturing of their products and to ensure their brand is protected from potential exposures, such as human rights violations, environmental issues, counterfeit materials and theft. These sectors are constantly monitoring and evaluating their supplier relationships to ensure they are responsibly manufacturing their products and protecting their workers from health and safety, and labor violations. To combat these global risks and uphold their reputation, organizations must have complete visibility into their suppliers’ policies and procedures to make sure their products are authentic and safe for their consumers, and that they remain compliant with Dodd-Frank regulations, various retail manufacturing standards, and social responsibility policies.
