Your suppliers will naturally make claims about how they operate and what systems are in place for quality management, environmental management, compliance with labor laws, etc.
Hiring a neutral third-party auditor to go to the factory gives you a more complete picture and allows you to verify any claims a supplier might make or to verify they are up to your standards.
For example, an audit could help you to:
- Decide whether a particular supplier will serve as a suitable long-term partner for your needs.
- Improve efficiency as well as quality in your supply chain by influencing management
- Ensure that your supply chain is free of problematic social or environmental issues
