The event will be held in New York and will focus on topics such as Bangladesh Workers Safety, Approaches to Social Compliance, Data Trends and Innovative Solutions for Better Decision Making. In a session led by Keri Dawson, Vice President of Industry Solutions & AdvisoryServices at MetricStream, attendees will gain insights on how to integrate supplier and risk based programs to gain control over the sourcing and procurement phases of the business process. The session will also highlight the need to develop and implement a more proactive and comprehensive supply chain strategy.
With a rising number of suppliers, vendors, distributors and sub-suppliers, the task of managing a vast and global supply chain has become challenging. New legislations, regulations and corporate compliance requirements such as FCPA, C-TPAT, AML, Customs and Trade Compliance, Environmental, Transportation, and Corporate Social Responsibility have forced organizations around the world to develop strategies that promote continuous monitoring and management over their supply chain security assessments, supplier and third-party risks, audits, and capacity building programs. Regulations that cover product safety and traceability such as REACH, TSCA, Conflict Minerals and California Prop 65 also call for a more methodical supply chain governance program.
