SURE Generated Risk Assessment

Task for all

What is the SURE Risk Assessment?

SURE gives each pre-order a system generated risk. This risk outcome is based on a decision tree which takes into account criteria such as species, raw material type and the perceived corruption within a country . The reason why SURE has generated the risk outcome is shown in the rationale section of the Unique Wood Source.

At this stage, you can get two results:

  1. Buyer Review

    The buyer should verify the Unique Wood Source information. The information that the supplier declared indicates that all linked Unique Wood Sources are of negligible risk. TFT has not checked the validity of this information or any of the documents provided.

  2. Non-Negligible Risk 

    Mitigation is required.  The information that the supplier declared indicates that there is at least one linked Unique Wood Source that is non-negligible risk. TFT has not checked the validity of this information or any documents provided.

Buyer Review. What Next?

The Buyer’s next step should be to review each Unique Wood Source by assessing the validity of the supplier-declared information and documents uploaded in SURE.  The buyer now has the following options in SURE:

  1. Send this pre-order/range to the supplier in order for them to add or update wood source details

    You should select this option if you want the Supplier to add or remove Unique Wood Sources or if following your review, the Supplier has left gaps or made errors in the information/documents and you require further input from the Supplier.  The comments section should be used when making requests to the Supplier.

  2. Request mitigation level on pre-order/range

    If you find gaps/errors in the information, or require assistance interpreting the supply chain, you can request ‘TFT Mitigation’ by selecting this option.  You should enter the name of the Unique Wood Source you would like risk mitigated in the comments section.  If this option is selected TFT will be sent a notification from SURE. TFT will then contact you to discuss the level of mitigation required and associated costs.

  3. Cancel this pre-order

    You should select this option if you decide not to buy the product from the Supplier.

  4. Accept risk and proceed to official order

    You should select this option if you have reviewed all Unique Wood Source information and all the risk has been mitigated.  When selecting this option you should be confident that the declared wood for this product is legally harvested.  Note SURE is not a purchase order system.

Non-Negligible. What Next?

You should review each Unique Wood Source.  You now have the following options in SURE:

  1. Send this pre-order/range to the supplier in order for them to add or update wood source details

    You should select this option if you want the Supplier to add or remove Unique Wood Sources or if following your review, the Supplier has left gaps or made errors in the information/documents and you require further input from the Supplier. The comments section should be used when making requests to the Supplier.

  2. Request mitigation level on pre-order/range

    If you find gaps/errors in the information, or require assistance interpreting the supply chain, or the Unique Wood Source is deemed a non-negligible risk you can request ‘TFT Mitigation’ by selecting this option.  You should enter the name of the Unique Wood Source you would like risk mitigated in the comments section.  If this option is selected TFT will be sent a notification from SURE.  TFT will then contact you to discuss the level of mitigation required and associated costs.

  3. Cancel this pre-order

    You should select this option if you decide not to buy the product from the Supplier.

  4. Accept risk and proceed to official order

    This pre-order/range has been flagged in SURE as Non-Negligible.  TFT does not recommend you ‘Proceed to official order’ when a product contains a Unique Wood Source with ‘Non-Negligible’ risk.
