Social Impact Assessment

The Social Impact Assessment is an assessment that companies can use to measure the effectiveness of the management systems in place safeguarding worker safety and workplace conditions.

It is a non-category-specific self-assessment tool designed to verify a company's capability to manage labor standards in their facility or in their supply chain depending on the type of company: direct manufacturer, or vendor.

The assessment costs $650 USD and consists of a self-assessment questionnaire and an independent evaluation call with an IETP assessor. Following this, the supplier will receive a tailored improvement plan and verified score.

The Social Impact Assessment program provides:

Remote online assessments help reduce audit burden, scalable and low cost

Globally available, non-category specific assessments, applicable to any company

External independent and trusted verification of your performance

Two types of assessment

Direct Manufacturers

The Social Impact Assessment for Manufacturers takes a different approach to the traditional factory audit and certification. The program focuses on management systems and is designed to verify and improve a supplier’s capability to manage labor standards in their facility.
