Third Party Factory and Supplier Audits

The key criteria an CGSD factory and supplier audit assesses are facilities, policies, procedures and records that verify a factory’s ability to deliver consistent quality products over time, rather than at one given time or only for certain products.

Major checkpoints of a supplier audit include:

  • Company legality information
  • Bank information
  • Human resource
  • Exportation capability
  • Order management

The standard factory audit includes:

  • Manufacturer’s background
  • Manpower
  • Production capability
  • Machine, facilities & equipment
  • Manufacturing process & production line
  • In-house quality system such as testing and inspection.
  • Management system & capability
  • Environment

Our factory audits and supplier audits provide you with a detailed analysis of the condition, strengths and weaknesses of your supplier. This service can also help the factory to understand areas requiring improvement to better meet the buyer’s needs.

As you select new vendors, reduce the number of your vendors to more manageable levels and improve overall performance, our factory and supplier audit services provide an effective way to enhance that process at a reduced cost to you.
