Maintaining an ethical supply chain is both more important, and more difficult, than ever for businesses. But there are solutions out there to help protect your reputation and your bottom line
Rx-360, a not-for-profit international consortium representing the world’s leading pharmaceutical and biotech organizations, is committed to protecting patient safety. Recognizing that the globalization of suppliers has added significant complexity to ensuring supplier quality and security of the supply chain, Rx-360 has developed the Joint Audit program to verify and validate supplier compliance, enhance supply chain integrity and improve quality.
BSI has confirmed several recent seizures by Philippine authorities of various smuggled counterfeit goods shipped into the country since February 2014.
One of the most common complaints made by the international supplier base is the repetition of Supply Chain Security audits.
This common complaint brought multiple industry leaders together to identify a strategy that would help reduce the cost and number of supply chain security audits conducted on global suppliers and factories each year. This collaboration led to the idea of creating a single agreed-upon security audit and sharing platform that would allow importers to evaluate shared supplier and factory audits. The Supplier Compliance Audit Network (SCAN), was developed to facilitate this strategy and establish an audit sharing platform that would help improve audit consistency, lower audit costs, and reduce audit frequency.
The 2014 Fall SCAN Conference will be held on September 9th, 2014 in Nashville, TN. During this conference we will continue to build on the concept of an auditing sharing platform and appoint board members to further develop the network.
