Sears & Kmart Vendor Conduct Adjustment Services

InTouch Helps You Meet Sears and Kmart Supplier Requirements

Like many of its largest competitors, Sears has taken steps to ensure ethical practices are implemented throughout their global supply chain. The cornerstone of Sears’ efforts to maintain these ethical standards is the corporation’s Code of Vendor Conduct. If you distribute in Sears’ retail stores, you may want to consider auditing your suppliers in preparation for a possible formal audit.

Our inspection process will not only cover all aspects of a Sears audit, but we’ll also work with your factory to help them achieve 100% compliance with the Code of Vendor Conduct. InTouch’s highly specialized compliance auditors will identify and work to correct any departures from the Sears Code of Vendor Conduct such as:

Sears Labor Relations

The Code of Vendor conduct strictly prohibits the use of child and compulsory labor to produce Sears products. Any supplier or subcontractor that does not comply with this standard will face termination of all business relations with Sears. InTouch compliance auditors are well versed in identifying these infractions, and can work with your suppliers to ensure that their workforce is restructured to include only of-age and willing employees.

Sears Environmental Protection

All suppliers and subcontractors are required to manufacture Sears products in a manner than complies with all local laws protecting the environment, as per the Vendor Code of Conduct. Sears also encourages its suppliers to minimize their environmental impact above and beyond the requirements of local laws.

In order to monitor compliance with certain areas of the Code of Vendor Conduct, Sears requires its suppliers and subcontractors to maintain adequate production and employee records.
