Verifying your supplier in Thailand before placing an order

How to verify your supplier in Thailand with a factory audit

Whether you’re manufacturing in Thailand or elsewhere, an audit of your supplier’s facility should be your last step in the sourcing process. Once you’ve narrowed down a list of potential suppliers you’re considering working with, it’s always wise to visit the factory and verify it. Only after actually seeing the factory—or conducting an audit—can you be confident that a supplier has the ability and capacity to meet your expectations.

Forced labor, underpayment of wages and excessive overtime are all possible threats to manufacturing in Thailand. And without a professional audit, you can’t be confident that you’re working with a supplier that complies with local law or your retailer’s standards.
