What is the scope of the assessment? The EcoVadis Team March 28, 2020 08:20 Updated The scope depends on the legal entity or entities of the company undergoing assessment. The assessment may span an entire group or parent company, or only a specific production site. However, each unit must be a commercial legal entity. The assessment scope is always indicated in your questionnaire. We do not carry out assessments of the following entities: Conglomerates or large companies operating across entirely different industries. In these cases, we recommend separate assessments for different divisions or subsidiaries, provided they have the right legal entity; Purely commercial entities (e.g., sales office, trading agent) and marketing entities in manufacturing groups; Governmental organization and NGOs; Product names, commercial brands and trademarks. Several local operational sites may be considered under a single assessment only if they are part of a single legal entity. Otherwise, we cannot assess several such sites in a single assessment. We may, in this case, proceed with separate assessments or assess the parent company. Related articles Can I change the scope of my assessment? What is the purpose of an EcoVadis assessment?
