I am a factory and I have previously used Sedex to complete SLCP verified assessments - will I still be able to access my data?
Do not worry – if your SLCP verified assessment was completed on the Sedex platform, you will still be able to access your data. Your verified data has already been shared to the SLCP Gateway, which is the central repository for all SLCP verified data. Your data is safe on the Gateway and will always be available to you. From your Gateway account, you can share your verified data to a stakeholder by email or share it to one of the other SLCP Accredited Host platforms: FFC, Higg Co or Inspectorio. For information on how to do this, please see this FAQ.
I am a factory and I have an unfinished SLCP assessment currently in progress on the Sedex platform – can I still finish my assessment?
Do not worry – you still have time to finish your SLCP assessment on the Sedex platform if you have already started it. You need to do so before 31 December 2020. This means that you must complete both the self-assessment and verification by 31 December and your assessment status must be “VRF” (verification finalized). From 01 January 2021, you will no longer be able to continue your SLCP assessment on the Sedex platform so please ensure you finish the process in time.
I am a factory and I was planning to start an SLCP assessment on the Sedex platform in a couple of weeks – can I still start my assessment using Sedex as an Accredited Host?

From 27 October, facilities will no longer be able to start an SLCP assessment on the Sedex platform.

I am a brand/ retailer and I access my suppliers SLCP verified assessments on the Sedex platform – will I be able to continue to do this?

All completed SLCP verified assessments are also stored on the SLCP Gateway. You can ask facilities to share their verified assessments with you directly from the Gateway or via one of the other passive or active Accredited Hosts.

I am a brand/ retailer and I have recently asked one of my suppliers to complete an SLCP verified assessment on the Sedex platform – will they still be able to do so?
If a facility started their SLCP assessment on the Sedex platform on or before 26 October, they will be able to complete it, as long as they do so by 31 December. From 27 October, facilities will no longer be able to start an SLCP assessment on the Sedex platform. Please contact your suppliers and ask them to use another active Accredited Host platform (Higg Co or FFC). Remember that a facility can share their completed verified assessment with any of the active or passive Accredited Hosts via the Gateway, so it doesn’t matter if they don’t use your preferred Accredited Host platform to complete the assessment process. Please do not ask a facility that has already started an SLCP assessment on one Accredited Host to switch to another one.
