  1. Verified Suppliers: Whose business registration details have been verified by independent third parties.
  2. Verified Manufacturers: Whose business scope, as licensed by relevant government departments, allows them to manufacture goods.
  3. Supplier Capability Assessment: In partnership with a third-party organization, we enable buyers to audit suppliers across several key areas, including production facilities, capabilities and product quality.
