The service has been set up to assist companies maintain standards when operating within a complex global supply chain, the dangers of which have become increasingly apparent in recent years.
SAFC will operate the service as an extension of its in-house auditing, giving clients access to staff with compliance and regulatory experience that operate in locales around the globe.
Gilles Cottier, President of SAFC, said: "SAFC understands that ensuring the proper quality for raw materials that feed customer pipelines is vital to their success, and quality assurance has always been a top priority for SAFC-sourced raw materials.
"This program leverages the high level of trust our customers have in SAFC's regulatory expertise and pioneers a much needed regulatory compliance service that can benefit our customers by providing them with an efficient and effective method to help them ensure that quality requirements are met for materials internationally sourced."
SAFC believes that clients using the service will be able to perform more audits across a bigger geographic area and also achieve cost savings as a result of not having to expand their regulatory compliance team.
Further savings can be realised by companies that are willing to allow SAFC to reuse their audit information for other customers.
