CHICAGO—The Quality Certification Alliance (QCA), an independent non-profit accreditation organization, adds Underwriters Laboratory (UL) as an authorized audit provider for the organization’s Accreditation Program.
UL joins auditing firm Bureau Veritas as the second audit provider for QCA’s program. QCA also says that it now offers accredited suppliers the chance to schedule future Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audits (SMETA) simultaneously with their QCA audits.
According to the QCA website, "QCA Accreditation is granted to companies who complete a process that is approximately 15-18 months in duration and includes multiple independent third-party audits, as well as compliance with stringent standards."
