Factory Audit includes two major projects:

A)   Production Capability & Quality Management System Audit

The Audit of Production Capability & Quality Management System is to evaluate a factory's production capability and performance of a factory against proven quality principles. As such, the key criteria assessed are policies, procedures and records that would indicate the factory’s ability to deliver consistent quality management over time, rather than at one given time or only for certain products. Core areas and processes addressed by a factory assessment include:

  • Quality Management System

  • Good Manufacturing Practice

  • Product Control

  • Process Control

  • Personnel

After the factory audit is completed, you will receive a summary report and a score card report that will include both an overall score and rating per section, highlighting key strengths and areas needing improvement. Our objective is to provide measurable results to both vendors and retailers as they work together for shared success.

B)   Social Compliance Audit:

As companies expand their manufacturing and sourcing capabilities around the world, supply chain workplace conditions are increasingly scrutinized, particularly in developing countries.

A Social Audit, also known as an ethical audit, helps companies understand the key sustainability issues they face and enable them to mitigate risks through their supply chain. A Social Audit verifies whether the supply chain operation complies with social and environmental standards.

Independent audits are valuable for businesses wishing to develop an effective social compliance programme, as they can cover complex issues such as local social conditions, cultures, languages of workers, and standard industry practices, along with any applicable laws and regulations.
