The audit process begins with the disclosure of the factories and subcontractors by the suppliers through Retail Link.
• Once the new factory request has been processed, a unique factory ID is generated, and the audit is assigned to a respective 3rd party audit firm.
• A Welcome Letter is sent to the Supplier as an introduction to the Responsible Sourcing Program.
• Factory disclosure and audit requests must be completed by suppliers at least 60 days prior to the ship date. Factory audits should be completed no less than 30 days prior to the ship date. It is the responsibility of the supplier to ensure that the factory is audited by the appropriate due dates.
Pre-Audit Questionnaire is a set of questions sent out by the third party audit firm
that must be completed by each factory in order to provide an overview of the
factory and their internal controls prior to the audit.
• Questions are related to:相关问题
• Production 生产
• Workforce 工人
• Compensation 薪酬
• Working Hours 工作时间
• Policies 政策
• Health & Safety 健康与安全
