The Standards for Suppliers are Walmart Inc.’s fundamental expectations of its suppliers related to social responsibility in all our markets.
The Global Compliance Guidance Tool is a resource which outlines Walmart’s compliance requirements and expectations to help new and existing suppliers become or continue to be compliant. After you answer a few questions, the tool will provide a summary of Walmart Stores, Inc. compliance requirements and programs that align with your supplier status, product and market. These include Responsible Sourcing, Food Safety, Health and Wellness, Product Safety, Global Supply Chain Security and Factory Capability and Capacity Audits.
Federal Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN)
Walmart Inc. requires this number on all U.S.-based suppliers’ application documents; non-U.S. suppliers must provide a current W-8 tax certificate as a part of the vendor setup process.
