Why is financial document verification required in CCS 3.0?

The policy for transaction certificates aims at embedding robust integrity in the supply chain by increasing transparency and traceability in each commercial transaction of verified materials and products. To this end, financial documents (e.g. sales invoices and receipts, purchase orders, bank statements, letters of credit, and relevant transport documents) are reviewed by the certification body to ensure that conditions such as physical location, transportation, and/or ownership of claimed material conform to Textile Exchange requirements.
