URSA goes beyond industry accepted protocols and assesses supplier practices in labour standards, health and safety, human rights, business integrity, environmental management and land tenure rights. Undergoing an URSA audit is necessary to meet Unilever’s requirements for compliance and to climb the responsible sourcing ladder to achieve the Good Practice Benchmark. As a Unilever supplier, to start the URSA audit process, you need to complete site registration in the USQS (Unilever Supplier Qualification System). Having made the audit request, you will be able to prepare for the on-site audit. Audit reporting is based on a checklist presented to you by Unilever.
