Risk Management Topics

Inlight Business Profile

Intertek can work with your team to create custom specific SAQ modules. By using our subject matter experts and our years of supplier risk assessment expertise, we can build the right questions that ensure you get the right level of information from your suppliers, giving a truer reflection of their compliance status. We believe that you should only ask questions that give you an insight into risk, and ask them in a way that ensures the supplier understands them and gives you a true reflection of their compliance.

Intertek also offers a series of Standard SAQs that allow your company to get started quickly on the supplier compliance journey. If you want to follow the same process as others by picking one of our pre-populated checklists then you can take advantage of the community benchmarking that comes from following the Standard offer. Below is an example of the SAQs that we have on offer. But we are continually creating more to meet the ever increasing needs of compliance, so talk to us if you don’t see your compliance topic listed.

A New Dawn in Reporting on Ethical Conduct in Supply Chains

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued final rules to implement Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which requires companies to provide disclosures about conflict minerals that are “necessary to the functionality or production of a product manufactured by the company.” Conflict minerals like gold, wolframite and other minerals determined by the U.S. government to be financing conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries.
 
Once a reporting company has determined that conflict minerals are necessary, a company must conduct a good faith inquiry regarding the origin of its conflict minerals.
 
Intertek Inlight is an on-line platform that enables companies to efficiently collect, manage and report conflict minerals-related data in a seamless process.
 
After a general supplier profile is created on the Inlight platform, suppliers are prompted by the system to complete Conflict Minerals specific questionnaire based on the EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.
 
With minimal time and cost commitment from your end, Inlight offers the perfect solution to monitor and manage Conflict Minerals risks in your supply chain.
