DOCUMENT ROADMAP

The BSCI System Manual is organised into five parts.


Part I: Understanding the BSCI Implementation Strategy: This part addresses all audiences and sets
the grounds to understand BSCI mechanisms. All other parts in the System Manual refer to Part I and
provide additional explanations.

Part II: Understanding the BSCI Audit For auditors: This part addresses the auditor as it explains
the BSCI Audit approach and methodology. Other audiences would benefit from reading it.

Part III: Understanding the BSCI Audit From the auditee perspective: This part addresses the auditee
(business partner to be monitored) by guiding it through all the steps to successfully prepare for the
BSCI Audit. Other audiences would benefit from reading it.

Part IV: Templates:


Business Partner Information and Supply Chain Mapping: These templates can be used by any business
enterprise to request information from a third party to initiate its mapping process. They are also used
by the auditee to gather information, which will be evaluated during the audit.
