At the European print facility, midocean is the first in the promotional industry to achieve the highest achievable audit score.
Ede- An independent auditor noted a significant improvement compared to the previous audit that took place in 2019. midocean is the only company in the industry to undergo an amfori BSCI audit. With an A-score, the company is also the first to achieve the highest possible audit result!
Safe working conditions
As a major player in the promotional industry, midocean takes its responsibility seriously. The entire midocean collection is produced according to European laws and regulations, all products are safe and tested with reports available directly on the midocean web site at item level. It is also vitally important that the people who produce and decorate the items can do so under safe conditions.
Independent, recurring audits
We prioritize the safety of all people involved in making our products. midocean is therefore a member of amfori BSCI: an initiative to improve working conditions worldwide. On behalf of midocean and by accredited audit companies, amfori BSCI performs independent and recurring audits at our suppliers. The findings of each audit are used to develop an improvement plan and the factory is given a set amount of time to implement these improvements.
Own print location achieves A-score amfori BSCI
In addition, we also ensure that our own production facility meets all local legal requirements in the field of working conditions. That is why amfori BSCI and SEDEX Smeta 4P audits are regularly performed at our print location in Ruda, Poland, in line with the required audit intervals. An audit provides a deeper insight into areas where continuous improvements can be made to the operational practises and facilities. As a quality concious organisation midocean on the 14th and 15th of January 2021 carried out a follow-up audit of both amfori BSCI and SEDEX Smeta 4P at our print facility. This audit resulted in a unique A-score achievement. The independent auditor noted a significant improvement compared to the previous audit. midocean demonstrates that it is able to improve its business processes in the field of working hours, environmental requirements and safety in a relatively short time. This benefits the organization, but above all contributes to a good, healthy and safe working environment for employees and the immediate environment of the location.
