Security in international business and trade

One of BASC’s main objectives is to promote secure international trade. Casa Sauza is always on the lookout for ways to improve, especially in regards to security. Discover our system, its significance, and the knowledge needed to implement it.

What is BASC?

BASC stands for Business Alliance for Secure Commerce, and is an international business alliance that promotes commercial trade in cooperation with governments and international organizations. It is a nonprofit organization, denominated as the World BASC Organization, with a mission to generate security throughout the supply chain.

How does Casa Sauza contribute to the BASC process?

To become part of this alliance and truly carry out safety procedures, each and every single staff-member must actively practice responsible applications and consistently follow safety standards. Some of these applications and standards are as follows:

  • Registration filters for new business partners
  • Visitor access control
  • Internal audits
  • Correct use of computer and telephone equipment

This is complemented with training programs, so that each employee can recognize necessary guidelines to carry out a good risk-management system and therefore allow for awareness of any insecure acts within the organization.
