If you are afraid of working with suppliers who can’t deliver as promised, a factory audit helps you to evaluate their reliability, capabilities and highlights key risks that might prevent them from meeting your needs, allowing you to make an informed decision on whether to work with them or not.
A successful production partner is a key part of your business. If they let you down, then your reputation, profits, and business take a hit.
Conducting a manufacturer audit like this before and during your cooperation with a supplier in China and elsewhere in Asia will not only help to make sure that they are the right partner, but also that they are capable of maintaining the standards that you require over time.

For various reasons, our staff may be unable to perform audits as usual in the coming weeks. In those cases, we can help conduct e-audits. There are pros and cons to e-audits, but they are inexpensive and quick.
In addition, we have developed a ‘Readiness & Capacity Audit,’ for importers who need to make sure their suppliers’ shipment plans are realistic and safety procedures are compliant with government regulations.
