The purpose of the Merlin Standard is to help organisations create better supply chains. The standard encourages the development, recognition, and promotion of excellence and positive partnerships.
The Merlin Standard has eight parts, listed below:
- Performance Manage
- Quality Assurance & Compliance
- Review & Close
Each of these parts is called a ‘Principle’. These Principles are broken down into further parts called ‘Criteria’. This structure helps organisations work together to build a meaningful supply chain. The whole standard can be download as a PDF or viewed at the merlin standard page .
