Events

We host supplier conferences, webinars, and provide training meetings for auditors.

Each year, PSCI members collaborate to deliver a supplier conference in one of the important sourcing regions. The conferences provide information and resources to help suppliers meet the expectations of the PSCI Principles.

We host at least two supplier webinars per year on issues that are prevalent in our collective supply chain, and where areas for improvement have been identified.

You can also find links to relevent external events here.
