A Manufacturing Audit is also known as a Factory Audit. Typically, an independent third-party inspection company carries out a factory audit. These companies have experienced and certified inspectors to perform this task. The main objective of conducting a factory audit differs significantly from an Indian product inspection, as it aims to minimize the chances of receiving faulty products and engaging with untrustworthy suppliers. Throughout the audit process, the inspector assesses if the factory complies with quality standards set by clients or regulatory bodies and various other criteria.
With Factory Audits, you can review the factory’s production processes and equipment, quality management systems, export licenses, and other relevant information in an impartial manner. As a result, you can establish trust with your supplier, which reduces the risk of receiving noncompliance.
