Global Security Verification (GSV) Audit

What is GSV?

Intertek created the Global Security Verification – GSV Standard to assist importers and suppliers in evaluating their security procedures in light of international supply-chain security regulations. The GSV program’s goal is to work with worldwide suppliers and importers to build a global security verification process that will benefit all participants by increasing assurance, risk control, efficiency, and cost savings.

The GSV programme is a collaboration between industry thought leaders and decision-makers to ensure that supply chains run smoothly and comply with multiple global supply chains security initiatives, such as C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism), PIP (Partners in Protection), and AEO (Authorized Economic Operators), the WCO framework, and related security requirements.

The Global Security Verification programme brings together a seasoned team of customs, in-country field inspectors, and information technology professionals to work on security challenges connected to international trade using proven business methods and proprietary technology. These programmes aid in the security of trade, the prevention of terrorist attacks, and the combat of illegal trafficking. Global importers and their suppliers can use the internationally known GSV programme to build a single, industry-wide supply chain security verification procedure, resulting in competitive advantages such as increased assurance, risk control, efficiency, and cost savings. Participants in the GSV programme can access consolidated industry data gathered from nearly 7,000 worldwide verifications done in more than 60 countries to better understand and manage supply chain security challenges, trends, and best practices.
