As part of our commitment to quality, our audit team has strict procedures in place to evaluate and approve outsourced manufacturing vendors as well as rigorous incoming quality testing for materials. Every batch of outsourced material is extensively tested before utilization in our production line. In addition to our testing procedures, The Canadian Shield also facilitates periodic audits for vendor compliance. As part of these audits, each of our suppliers is evaluated for adherence to responsible business practices including (but not limited to) ethical, social, environmental and health and safety responsibilities.
