Frequently Asked Questions on Factory Audit

Why do I need Factory Audit?

Don’t get in a bind working with the wrong factory, or paying a down payment to a company that you know little to nothing about. Set a strong foundation for your business by building business relationships with the right suppliers. V-Trust will work with you by providing you with reliable information before you begin your next import project from Asia.

How many days in advance should I book the Factory Audit?

Though sometimes it's possible to book next-day audit for many manufacturing clusters where V-Trust has a large team of full-time auditors, we recommend booking with us at least three days in advance. Early booking is important for appropriate scheduling and good preparation before the audit.

Who will I be in contact with throughout the whole process?

There will be one dedicated account manager who will be assigned as your main contact point at V-Trust. You will receive prompt response whenever you have any questions regarding the factory audit arrangement.

Do I need to inform the factory about the planned audit?

Yes. Your account manager at V-Trust contacts the factory to confirm the actual audit date before each audit. If you have informed the factory in advance that you will commission V-Trust to conduct the audit, this confirmation process will go much more smoothly.

Can I discuss with you in details about my own Factory Audit criteria?

Absolutely! We encourage our clients to share whether they have special requirements for the audits, or issues that they hope that the auditors can pay attention to. We can combine them into a tailor-made checklist for audit reference.

How long does it take to know the Factory Audit result?

The official report, reviewed and signed by an authorized V-Trust technical manager, will be available within 2 days after each audit. Same day draft report is available if you would like to know about the main audit findings on the same day. V-Trust has the highest same day report rate in the inspection industry.

What if I have questions after I check my V-Trust Factory Audit report?

Please don’t hesitate to contact us whenever you have any questions. The V-Trust team is always available even after the audit is completed.
