Factory Audit

Factory Audit is an examination of a factory's facilities, workplace practices, and conditions. An auditor evaluates various aspects of the factory, such as its systems, capacity, workplace environment, and capabilities to ensure alignment with buyer requirements. A factory audit is also used to qualify potential suppliers or manage existing relationships.

Factory audits can be used to ensure supplier compliance, ethical practices, and product quality.
