What is the difference between different audit types?
First Party: a company that “self-audits” their own
employment site using their own audit resource
Second Party: an audit or assessment undertaken by a body
with a trading relationship with the site
such as a retailer, brand, vendor or agent
Third Party: an audit or assessment undertaken by an
independent party e.g. an independent
commercial audit company, NGO or trade union.
