HQTS Manufacturer Audits are an important step in a quality vendor evaluation process. Our professional auditors can help you to determine if certain representations made by a vendor are accurate. This is so important in deleoping countries where some suppliers will do or say just about anything to land your business.

    • The Standard Factory Audit includes the following:
      • Factory ownership
      • Legal operating status
      • Confirm facilities locations
      • Business size and employee count
