Factory Audits are often the last step in the sourcing process. It
usually takes place after screening a group of potential suppliers
down to the serious ones. Not only is it the most expensive form of
evaluating supplier, it is also the most in-depth.
It is important to get to the factory to confirm if the key
managers will be available on the desired date. Surprise audits can
only be carried in certain situations.
A Factory Audit is compulsory before any order is locked in because
it will (in the long run) save the importer from potential
disaster, money loss, disappointment and business failure. Thus,
accurate and concrete information are needed when selecting a
supplier. These information will help you determine if they are the
right supplier to do business with.
The Factory Audit process should not be rushed neither should it be
based solely on price. There are quite a number of factors that
should be put into consideration. Some factories are known for bad
quality, not following directions, rough handling and signing off
on products that they have not inspected.
Some are also known for child labor, degradation of the environment
and poor working conditions. Thus, you need to research your
manufacturer, pay a visit to their premises and ensure that they
are checked out before entering into any business agreement.
This is to assist clients to find and select the right factory or
supplier and avoid buying blind. It is one of the most essential
factors for successful sourcing. Top Inspection Factory Evaluation
