TRAC

BASELINE DUE DILIGENCE PROFILE

TRAC is an online platform that enables the rapid exchange of compliance information and satisfies international baseline due diligence requirements for third parties. Approved applicants are assigned a unique ID number within 48 hours and may provide global business partners with complimentary access to their due diligence profile. Any company or individual may apply for a TRAC. 

TRACE members are eligible to obtain a TRAC number for their organization at no cost.

Companies or individuals that have completed or renewed their TRAC profile within the last year are included in the TRAC Register, a searchable database of global suppliers that have completed a baseline due diligence review.
