Reporting, tracking and tracing
Control Union Certifications registers all relevant data during a certification process, including the name of employee involved as well as the process behind any decision that was made. The customer has always full access to their files via our online client portal.
About reporting, tracking and tracing
The way we work
Following all inspections and audits, a visit report is produced and signed off by the auditor. The customer will be informed about the findings as well as having full access to their files.
The setup of the report changes in line with the required standards, as well as for the purpose of the inspection that was carried out but a report will always include a brief summary, to give an overview of key points, such as why it was concluded that a client was or wasn’t in compliance with a certain requirement.
This is so you have a clear view on what actions are needed to comply with that specific requirement. It is important to Control Union to make our customers jobs as easy as possible.
What is CONNECTED?
CONNECTED is an open platform, designed by Control Union, allowing companies to trace a product’s journey back, from finished garment to the source of the raw materials. It also allows users to acquire a range of important data, from flows of materials to compliance information.Read more about Connected
We all know how complex textile supply chains are and how difficult it is to have their full and continuous visibility. It is a clear sign of commitment, by the industry at large, to transparency and responsible sourcing. CONNECTED makes this possible.Franco Costantini – Senior Manager Supply Chain Services
How you benefit
About the platform
Every producer in the platform is linked to its suppliers or to its clients, and can receive and submit orders and shipments via CONNECTED. In addition, every user of the platform has access to local support centres managed by Control Union in all producing regions.
CONNECTED helps brands reach their goals of traceability and sustainability; meanwhile, producers of raw materials, such as fibres producers, can use the platform to drive and monitor the uptake of their sustainable products.
CONNECTED continues to grow, with new producers joining the platform on a daily basis. It is expected to expand significantly during the next few months with the registration of new supply chains and expansion to new materials.
