Paris Counsel Cécile Terret was interviewed July 8 in Décision Achats on the evaluation of third parties, one of the eight pillars of the Sapin II law. The evaluation of third parties, including suppliers, is an important part of the fight against corruption and money laundering. The purchasing department must actively participate in this evaluation which, although time-consuming, makes it possible to improve supplier management. “The objective is to know with whom we contract so as not to run the risk of being involved in corruption cases,” Terret told the publication.
