Developmental and Finished Product samples will be provided to The Body Shop at agreed specific times and against a defined brief and incorporating sustainable alternatives. If the submission cannot match the brief, The Body Shop requires a relevant and qualitative alternative to be suggested by the supplier. Approval of these samples by The Body Shop requires two weeks and should be incorporated into the project plan that is agreed with The Body Shop. It is the supplier's responsibility to ensure that these samples together with all the correct corresponding documents are issued to the timings on the project plan and to ensure that The Body Shop is aware of the date required for their return.
The Body Shop will use the finished product samples to set quality standards and for product registration purposes
