Our engineers survey your potential or new suppliers on-site and provide detailed reports on the general operations, quality systems, qualifications and capabilities of the supplier as a viable source.
Supplier Process Control and Quality System
Audits evaluate all manufacturing process control systems for existing or new suppliers. Each audit report covers several areas, including evaluations of management, quality control methods, non-conforming materials, corrective action, and inspection and test equipment.
Social Accountability (SA8000)
These evaluations focus on the following areas: Health and safety, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours, compensation, management practices, forced labor, freedom of association and child labor laws.
Although we have offered ISO14000 (environmental) and SA8000 (social responsibility) audits for a number of years, many retailers are now requiring audits that combine elements of both of these standards along with additional elements covering energy usage, renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions, materials and waste reduction, life cycle management, supplier's supply chain activities and more.
Industry standards in this area are in their early stages and evolving swiftly. JORSON's team of auditors and supplier development professionals are ready to profile your audits for conformance to the standards emerging from your clients in both industry and retail.
