LOS ANGELES, Mar. 26 /CSRwire/ - UL’s Responsible Sourcing group, a leading global provider of corporate responsibility auditing and consulting services, today announced the introduction of its Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) System to help manage and track improvements in manufacturing processes and responsible workplace systems throughout the supply chain.
The CAPA System is an online workflow management tool that helps companies communicate workplace improvements to their business partners, educate staff and suppliers about workplace systems, track and document the closure of audit findings, and streamline management of the corrective action process.
“Our new online CAPA System has been designed to facilitate collaborative problem-solving between global brands, their vendors and manufacturing sites,” said Ryan Lynch, project manager, UL Responsible Sourcing. “The tool addresses the challenge of managing a huge number of complex, site-specific workplace challenges within large-scale supply chain risk management programs.”
By making data centralized and easily viewable, providing real-time status reports, and keeping corrective actions on track, the CAPA System will be of great value to companies that want to positively impact the integrity of their supply chain.
