Ensure you're working with the right supplier in Taiwan

Why importers often audit their supplier's facility

Many importers understand the risks inherent in manufacturing abroad. It’s often difficult to know where manufacturing will actually take place and whether the factory is legitimate without conducting an audit. By auditing the factory, you get an inside look at the facility to verify if you’re working with the right supplier or one you should avoid.

  • Proper equipment and the production capacity to manufacture your product in the quantities demanded
  • Engineering and design capabilities
  • Quality management systems, typically following ISO 9001 standards
  • Adherence to social compliance or responsible sourcing standards, following any number of brand/retailer frameworks
  • Good manufacturing practices (GMP)

Professional audits are especially helpful for importers at the end of the sourcing process when trying to vet two or more potential suppliers in Taiwan. An audit gives you the transparency needed to make a more informed decision about which supplier to work with.
