Supply chain security
Managing the risk
The threats surrounding your supply chain, your brand and your shareholder value are growing - and they are becoming more complex. The management of security hugely benefits from a verifiable risk-based management system. Understanding your supply chain security risks is the first step in turning them into opportunities. In a world of globalisation, lean supply chains and outsourcing, managing your supply chain security risks demands a proactive, integrated approach.
So, imagine a company that's dedicated to assuring your most valuable assets. A company with global knowledge and local expertise, one who really understands the risks and opportunities you're facing, offering you the most highly qualified team of assessors, auditors and verifiers in the world. That company is LRQA.
Security incidents can cause significant disruption to your supply chain and your financial health. And by not meeting customer demand you could damage your brand reputation. With today's global media, bad news can travel fast - a brand's reputation can take years to build and one mistake to destroy.
LRQA's supply chain security services are underpinned by the confidence of your organisation having a robust security management system in place. This system may be based around the international management system standards ISO:28000 (Supply Chain Security) and ISO:27001 (Information Security) if appropriate to your organisations needs.
However the range of services LRQA offers also allows us to go beyond this…

Turning compliance into business advantage
You may have a requirement to comply with any number of regulatory or non governmental schemes such as AEO, C-TPAT, ISPS or TAPA to protect your visible assets and ease the flow of goods; but what about your invisible assets, like your corporate reputation or your shareholder value? Security incidents can cause significant disruption to your supply chain and your financial health. And by not meeting customer demand you could damage your brand reputation.
With today's global media, bad news can travel fast - a brand's reputation can take years to build and one mistake to destroy.
