The AAG
The Associate Auditor Group

Wieta WRAP Being a member of the AAG does not affirm the competencies of, or certify, auditors. Sedex does not approve auditors or audit bodies. Sedex will accept audits from all auditors and we believe it is the right and responsibility of our members, purchasers and suppliers to decide and agree which auditors they will use.

Other types of auditors


You do not need to be a member of the AAG in order to perform, or upload a SMETA audit onto Sedex, but there is the possibility of purchasing additional functionality. For instructions on how to register as an auditor on the Sedex system please download part 1 of our Auditor Guidance Pack . The Audit Company Group (previously the Non AAG) As the number of global auditors using the system has increased, other audit companies are interested in improving their Sedex experience. For this reason, we have created another auditor group the Audit Company Group who have increased their functionality on the Sedex system in order to offer an improved service to their customers. See our Auditors page for more information. Independent auditors Independent auditors have their own way of using the Sedex system and membership of the AAG / Audit Company Group is not open to independent auditors.
