It serves as a contractual agreement with our suppliers and manufacturers for which we have thorough arrangements as to how to ensure the compliance. It is in your benefit not to duplicate efforts so we prefer to work with suppliers and manufacturers that understand the need for security, certainty and confidence that things are being manufactured and delivered as agreed.
