Quality Auditing

Qualspec is globally accredited meeting ISO 9001 standards to conduct Factory Assessment Audits and Ethical Social Compliance Audits. Qualspec is also a significant provider of Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audits (SMETA).

Do you conduct or are you considering conducting your business’ production offshore?

More than ever, consumers are interested in the story of where their garments come from and how they are made. They want to buy from businesses that engage in ethical sourcing and production.

We have introduced a new abridged Social and Ethical Compliance Audit –

MINI-AUDIT; which enables you to ensure that the minor resources in your supply chain are compliant but are not subjected to the rigors of a full generic or SEDEX SMETA audit. This new service is priced more competitively than a full audit. Criteria for mini audit:

• Resource supplies accessories or auxiliary processes only. Eg, zips, buttons, laces, small embroidered logo’s, etc.
• Resource has 20 or fewer workers.
• Resource represents less than 2% of your business whilst you represent a very small % of theirs.
• Key compliance areas covered include wages, health and safety, factory records and worker voice.

ENVIRONMENTAL AUDIT; Our new environmental audit is entirely separate from existing generic audit formats and will apply to raw materials and outsourced processing plants. It is aligned with ISO 140001: 2015. The Auditor will be a chemical technician who will monitor water treatment, waste water quality, carbon emissions, hazardous chemicals, handling storage and disposal and noise pollution. Suitable for dye houses, laundries and fabric mills.

A NEW TOMORROW; We are about to launch a revolutionary new approach taking compliance beyond audit. Contact us to learn more about this exciting new development.
