Our factory audits are comprehensive and take into account the following areas:

Quality Systems

What happens if your company receives a few shipments that are acceptable, but the next batch that you receive are defective?

An inconsistent supplier can hinder your company’s key operation and cost you time and money. UTIIS performs quality systems audits to ensure that your company obtains consistent quality delivery of your orders in each shipment. Our inspectors are there to assess your supplier’s productions systems to guarantee that their assembly line can produce quality products not just once but every single time.

Quality systems audits examine human resource elements:

  • Management Systems
  • Employee Involvement
  • Leadership effectiveness
  • Manufacturer’s focus on quality and improvement

Our quality systems audits are performed throughout different time intervals and consider several factors such as management, machinery, and other production equipment. We complete thorough inspections of all factory machinery to confirm optimal fabrication performance at all stages of production.


Social Compliance

Your company may be keen on following best practices and staying compliant with regulatory agencies, but how can you be sure that your suppliers are doing the same? This question is even more critical when your manufacturer is thousands of miles from you in a different part of the world.

Much of your success depends on how well your manufacturer can deliver. You depend on them, and their failure in one area can affect your bottom line and get in the way of your progress.

To prevent this from happening UTIIS conducts social compliance audits to confirm that your manufacturer is responding appropriately to their industry’s regulations and that they are in no way compromising your products or your business as a result of their inefficiencies.


If you have business locations in the United States, a security audit ensures that your chosen manufacturer adheres with C-TPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) regulations. This portion of the review looks for any potential risks associated with terrorist activities inside an organization. These anti-terrorism regulations were established by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to identify any weaknesses within the supply chain that could be exploited by terrorist organizations. A security audit verifies that your supplier under C-TPAT is following best practices.
