WHAT IS SOCIAL AUDIT?
A social audit is essential to indicate you are socially responsible. A social audit, also referred to as the Corporate Social Audit (CSA), Social Compliance Audit, or Ethical Audit, helps you manage your supplier's commitment to a safe and ethical workplace at their factory in China and Asia.
The trained and accredited social auditors of BEEinspection visit your vendor's factory to perform a physical evaluation of working conditions for compliance with the international Social Accountability Standard, SA 8000, and local regulations. To obtain a clear insight into the current societal compliance situation, they observe, interview, and analyze data.
Each social audit is special, incorporating the social audit checklist of the BEEinspection, including over 100 checkpoints, with the specific requirements. BEEinspection social auditors can provide a detailed social audit corrective action plan to support implementing the necessary adjustments to comply with social accountability requirements.
BEEinspection will schedule the Social Audit within 48 hours and guarantees that a Social Audit report is available for the working day after the audit.
