The SSA standard (Sustainability and Security Assessment) is a system of
unified indicators of the level of implementation of the principles of the
Sustainability and Security Initiative of chemical, food and pharmaceutical
manufacturers and logistics service providers. The requirements of the SSA standard cover aspects of quality, security, environmental and corporate social responsibility management systems. The SSA standard can be used for voluntary certification, which results in a detailed report. Third party reports (independent accredited auditors) enable chemical, food and pharmaceutical companies and logistics service providers to assess the performance of their management systems against international standards and industry requirements.
