Auditing your factory in Indonesia helps ensure your sourcing success

Most importers know that the sourcing process doesn’t end with narrowing their search to a few potential suppliers, especially when those suppliers are in Indonesia. Before choosing a particular supplier to work with, they’ll often conduct a factory audit in Indonesia to give them added transparency to decide if they’re working with the right one. This helps importers avoid working with a factory that doesn’t meet their requirements or puts their brand at risk.

  • Production capacity & sophistication
  • Machine maintenance & calibration
  • Quality management systems, typically following ISO 9001 standards
  • Labor practices and ethical compliance, following one of many retailer/brand auditing frameworks
  • Environmental management systems, relying on ISO 14001 standards

Sometimes importers think their supplier’s factory is in one location, but it’s actually somewhere else. This makes it difficult to hold their supplier accountable, not only for issues with product quality, but also for labor violations, which aren’t uncommon in the region. A professional audit gives you the confidence to begin working with a supplier for the first time, without having to worry whether their factory employs child labor or can actually manufacture your product.
