It is important to do a factory or supplier audit before starting production for a number of reasons. First and foremost, a factory or supplier audit can help to ensure that the goods being produced meet the required quality standards and specifications.
This can help to reduce the risk of defective products and costly recalls, and can help to protect the reputation of the business. In addition, a factory or supplier audit can help to identify any potential risks or issues with the factory or supplier’s operations, such as health and safety concerns, environmental problems, or labor violations.
This can help the business to mitigate these risks and ensure that its supply chain is ethically and sustainably managed.
