SIZA has endorsed the adoption of the Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP) reference tools as the platform for its own audit scheme. The Auditor Competency reference tool describes WHO can perform audits and will be used as the basis for the recognition of auditors for the SIZA programme. Audit bodies will independently submit to the GSCP for the equivalence process and only those who go through and finished this process will be recognized by the SIZA programme and retailers to conduct audits. 

This will ensure the independence of the audit bodies from the SIZA programme and the robustness of the process. A Service Level Agreement between SIZA and the Audit Bodies will be put in place once the GSCP process is completed.

SIZA is committed to establishing processes to ensure that the SIZA Code monitoring and measurement can be carried out in a manner that is consistent with the SIZA Standard. For more information about the SIZA Auditor competency guidelines, please click on the link below:
