China Factory Audits

Visiting China factories from overseas can be a challenge when doing trade cooperation in China or sourcing from Chinese factories.

Factory audits is an important step in supplier evaluation and supplier screening by investigating the supplier and visiting the actual China factory through on-site verification, allowing you to understand the facility environment and manufacturing operations of the China supplier on-site without having to leave the office.

On-site audits of Chinese factories can identify falsehoods and debunk myths, confirm the legitimacy of suppliers, and avoid supplier fraud and Chinese factory scams.

On-site audits reflect the production and operational capabilities of Chinese suppliers more clearly than traditional background checks, effectively expose suppliers for fraud and misrepresentation, reduce sourcing risks, and improve negotiation support.

Factory audits of Chinese factories can assess the factory's production capacity, equipment condition, management system, and quality and safety system, identify problems before order confirmation or transaction cooperation, and ensure that the factory can provide qualified products and stable services, thus reducing the risk of poor product quality, delivery delays, and supply chain disruptions, improving the safety of cooperation, and guaranteeing smooth business.
