Clean and sterile Isofield Malaysia has joined the SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) platform, following SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) audit.

It is designed to protect workers from unsafe conditions, overwork, discrimination, low pay, and forced labour.
Complementing our ISO 9001, which focuses on our quality systems, the membership of SEDEX, and our commitment to the SMETA principles give Isofield further impetus to ensure all social compliance measures are met and exceeded as we grow
