Our forensic audit enables the identiﬁcation and reporting of forced labour and hidden exploitation, whilst also recognising and rewarding good practices.
Fast Forward supplier training, practical resources and assessment standards support and incentivise suppliers to succeed and improve beyond compliance.
Graded performance measurement and risk ratings, enable brands/retailers to move beyond audit to self-monitoring and reporting for their trusted best performing suppliers.
Recognition of suppliers enabling worker voice is embedded throughout the assessment and a range of engagement tools provided to facilitate worker input.
AUDIT CONSISTENCY AND INTEGRITY
Consistent software based audits, rigorous auditor approval, training and competency assessment, embedded integrity assurance and ongoing calibration process to succeed and improve beyond compliance.
Fast Forward takes a management systems approach, putting the onus on customers to demonstrate evidence of compliance rather than on the auditor to prove non-compliance - giving a more representative picture of customers ongoing performance.
A holistic, ‘control point’, management systems approach, mapped to global labour standards plus business integrity and responsible recruitment.
Brands can share audit reports with other Fast Forward brands and collaborate to jointly support remediation with shared suppliers. We collaborate with brands, auditors and suppliers to respond quickly and effectively to the latest risks and requirements and support the ongoing development of the programme.
