The Supplier Agreement Program (SAPA), is a unique new service designed by DKSH to conduct supplier auditing and certification. This service assures our customers that the products they source from us are delivered on-specification and ensures consistency in terms of quality and sustainability. With SAPA in place, customers can rely on the work done by us and at the same time reduce non-compliance risks, recalls, and major deviations. Ultimately, we can help improve our suppliers‘ business and products and by doing so, both our suppliers and our customers can gain professional credibility in their markets.
In 2007, a new and very strict chemicals regulation took effect that fundamentally changed chemical control in the EU. In response, DKSH offers coordinated action from both the regulatory affairs and business sides, and a proactive way of dealing with those challenges. Critical factors are business-driven decisions combined with regulatory expertise. The deep industry knowledge of our REACH experts and the leverage of our global DKSH networks are a real competitive advantage for everyone affected by the legislation.
