(UL: Los Angeles) -- UL Responsible Sourcing of Underwriter Laboratories (UL), a global provider of corporate responsibility auditing and ethical sourcing consulting services, has introduced its corrective and preventive action (CAPA) system to help manage and track improvements in manufacturing processes and responsible workplace systems throughout the supply chain.

The CAPA system is an online workflow management tool that helps companies communicate workplace improvements to their business partners, educate staff and suppliers about workplace systems, track and document the closure of audit findings, and streamline management of the corrective action process.

“Our new online CAPA system has been designed to facilitate collaborative problem solving between global brands, their vendors, and manufacturing sites,” says Ryan Lynch, project manager, UL Responsible Sourcing. “The tool addresses managing a huge number of complex, site-specific workplace challenges within large-scale, supply-chain risk management programs.”

By making data centralized and easily viewable, providing real-time status reports, and keeping corrective actions on track, the CAPA system is designed to help companies positively influence the integrity of their supply chains.
