Inspections and Audits. They are NOT the same thing.

A few months ago I offered a blog post about How to prepare an inspection check list? The post included an easy to understand cartoon about the process, compliments of Renaud of  I joked with him that I wish I could get my hands on a similar cartoon that could explain the complexities of doing a factory audit in as simple a fashion as his carton on inspections.


Renaud saves the day again with an infographic called “How does a factory audit work?” which I post below with his permission.


Wishing you successful China Sourcing!
