The Gateway securely stores the verified data that is collected from facilities through SLCP assessments. All information is safely stored on an UN server. It is here that facilities control who they share their SLCP data with. The Gateway is also where brands can see basic info about all facilities and the status of their most recent assessments.
All in all, the Gateway serves 4 functions:
- Main portal for everyone to access information related to the SLCP process
- Overview of where in the assessment process facilities are
- Digital connection between the SLCP system users, i.e. facilities, Verifier Bodies, Verifiers and Accredited Hosts (AHs)
- Sharing (with facility permission) of verified data to AHs and end-users.
