A factory audit can uncover problems before production or order confirmation. You could have an exact understanding of your supplier's capabilities, quality control system, management and operating procedures. This enables you to select a qualified supplier with confidence.
Simple Factory Audit (SFA)
Simple factory audit checks the legitimacy of the factory. The auditor will check and verify the factory’s licenses; take some photos of its office, contact person and the workshop production. It only checks the most basic information such as: factory profile, human resources, and production facilities, so you can be sure the factory is not fake or a trading company.
Credit audits evaluate your potential supplier in terms of the company's financial standing and credit, analyzing the commercial risk accordingly. Visiting the supplier is not required in this audit. Reference figures are collected from official databases, including local Industry and Commerce Administration Bureau, court, financial institutions etc.

This audit focuses on the following areas according to SA8000 standards: health and safety, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours, compensation, management practices, forced labor, freedom of association, and child labor laws.
