Why Perform a Factory Audit (FA)?
Performing a Factory Audit is a cost-effective, time-efficient way to compile a complete profile of your supplier, so that you know if they're reliable – before you give them your business.
An AsiaInspection Factory Audit ensures:
- Your supplier's factory exists and is operational
- Machinery is suitable to manufacture your product
- Factory management is competent
- Your supplier uses only quality vendors
- Finished product will be stored safely
- Production will start and finish on time
When should a Factory Audit be Performed?
Always perform a factory audit before you release your official Purchase Order. The purpose of a factory audit is to assess whether or not that supplier is capable of completing your product order on time, to your quality expectations. Also, before production, your auditor can conduct interviews, inspections, and access records – without disrupting your production schedule.
