Introduction to SMETA Audit Program


SMETA is a global standard for preventing and addressing the risk of adverse impacts on human rights linked to business activity, and there is an expectation that businesses will identify how their activities impact on the human rights of people and communities within their sphere of operation.
As a result SMETA 6.0 includes an investigation into how Universal Rights are protected within global supply chains.
