S.A.V.E. is our Social Accountability, Verification and Evaluation program and we offer this to clients that are concerned with Social, Ethical and Legal Issues. The services we offer under S.A.V.E. are:
Social Audits– This audit focuses on the human rights and working conditions of employees in foreign factories. A complete evaluation focusing on working conditions, child labor, fire safety, dormitory conditions, wages, and other issues are reported along with photos. If a factory fails the audit, we will work with both our clients and their factories to improve on the questionable points.
Transshipment Audits - This service deals with country of origin issues and we will audit a factory during the sewing stage to ensure that they are in compliance with all US Customs regulations.
Factory Evaluation – Prior to placing an order with a new factory, a company may have questions or concerns with their capabilities and professionalism. We will perform a complete evaluation to verify the number of people working, type of equipment they use in order to produce the product, daily or weekly production output, cleanliness and overall qualifications.
