【2017年6月30日邮件全文】沃尔玛正式通知全球供应商——8月1日可Freestyle啦!

2017年6月30日,沃尔玛通过邮件正式通知全球供应商:供应商标准、第三方审计方法以及责任采购学院培训门户同步更新!邮件明确指出,8月1日始,八大认证可完全替代原有的ES审核,除SMETA需由指定公证行进行审核,其他认证均不设限!


以下奉上邮件原文


Dear Supplier,

Thank you for participating in the pilot we launched last year to evaluate the effectiveness of accepting audit reports from third-party audit programs. Your feedback throughout this process has helped us evaluate and improve the approach. After seeing positive results, we have decided to transition our global program to this new audit approach. This approach will replace traditional Walmart Responsible Sourcing audits.

Beginning August 1, 2017, when a current audit is due to expire for one of your facilities, you will be required to submit a valid audit report from one of the approved third-party audit programs listed below:

 

Approved Audit Programs*

?         Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP)

?         Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI)

?         Better Work

?         Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC)

?         International Council of Toy Industries CARE

?         SEDEX Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA)

?         Social Accountability International (SA8000)

?         Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) 

The third-party audit programs listed below are regional and industry specific. We are still evaluating these programs and they will be accepted during the evaluation process.

?         South Africa Agriculture - Sustainability Initiative of South Africa (SIZA)

?         Brazil Apparel - Brazilian Textile Retailers Association (ABVTEX)

Audits are not mandatory for some small suppliers, but we do require participation in a capacity building program administered by Intertek for small suppliers that produce private label or exclusive brand products for Walmart.

?         Small Supplier Program administered through Intertek

*Additional programs may be approved and added to this list in the future

Under normal circumstances, Walmart will not endorse or direct you to select one audit program over another. Please take the opportunity to review and understand these programs and select the one that makes the most sense for your business. In some higher-risk geographies or supply chains, we may develop a policy that requires or encourages your participation in one specific program. When that is the case, we will notify you directly.

As we make this transition, I want to let you know about a few key differences between the pilot and our global approach:

  • Quarterly reports on your facility base: You will no longerreceive our standard facility-specific Audit Due notification fromResponsible Sourcing. Instead, we will send you a report detailing yourtotal disclosed facility base and indicating when an audit is due for eachfacility.

  • Audit expiration dates: Most of the approvedaudit programs will set expiration dates for your audits. In cases where aprogram does not do this, Responsible Sourcing will set an expirationdate.

  • Expired pilot audits:  If the audit report youhave submitted as part of the pilot expires, or has expired, between thedate you submitted the report and August 1, 2017, you will have 60 daysfrom August 1 to submit a current audit report. If you do not submit acurrent report within this time, the facility may be inactivated and nonew orders may be placed.

  • Report Submission Requirements: Our report submissionrequirements have changed from the pilot process and can be found in our supplier guide.

  • Assessment Ratings: Reports submitted aspart of the pilot were evaluated and facilities assessed as either"Pilot - Continue" or "Pilot - Stop." These reports,along with future reports submitted will be assessed with a color ratingof Green, Yellow, Orange or Red, and notification of the assessment colorrating will be sent to suppliers.

Later this month, you will receive an email from me sharing additional details and guidance on our audit approach, along with information about important changes to our expectations of suppliers and related program changes.

Thank you again for participating in our pilot and collaborating with us as we continue working to enhance our Responsible Sourcing program. For materials and guidance on our new audit approach or the Responsible Sourcing program in general, please access the Responsible Sourcing Academy Training Portal. If you have questions that are not answered through these resources, you can find contact information for additional support in the Portal.



综上,需要注意以下几点:

1)最终审核结果是否为通过,仍以沃尔玛原道德采购标准进行等级判断,与行业第三方认证判级标准无关。

2)更新后的供应商标准有指出:Suppliers who submit an audit report that results in an Orange rating must continue to use the same audit program until the facility improves its rating to Green or Yellow. 即,如果工厂所提交的报告判为橙灯,则供应商在跟进审核中必须沿用同一个认证标准进行审核,一直到其违规点已获改善,拿到绿灯或黄灯为止。

举例:工厂在首次提交报告选择了BSCI,但该报告提交给沃尔玛后判为橙灯;则工厂在后续的跟进审核中,必须仍然选择BSCI,而不可用SMETA或WARP等其他认证代替,直到工厂拿到黄灯为止。

3)除SMETA需由指定的七家公证行进行审核外其他认证(包括BSCI、EICC、WRAP、SA8000、ICTI等)均不对工厂选择哪家公证行进行限制,工厂只需要从该认证体系认可的公证行选择任意一间即可
