BASC Auditor Certification at Produmar Plant
At the end of last month, personnel from Produmar Plant received certification as BASC (Business Alliance for Secure Commerce) auditors. For Produmar, the purpose of the BASC certification is, as mentioned in their safety policy; to identify and mitigate the risks of illicit activities by third parties in the logistics chain by diligently complying with the BASC regulations.
Having an internal group of BASC auditors means that employees are well educated in this standard and therefore are able to implement the regulations. The certification process for the plant was concluded early this week.
