   SOCIAL COMPLIANCE’S & OUR HIGH STANDARDS

During our initial factory audit , AASA will review the entire facility – production area, warehouse, dormitories, canteen, etc – will give your auditors insight into the physical conditions the employees work in every day.

Local Chinese, Vietnam and other Asian countries laws requires that basic amenities be upheld at all factories: Enough space to move around and work in production areas, adequate ventilation, clearly marked and unobstructed emergency exits, sanitary cafeterias and restrooms, and easy access to potable water. AASA has no wiggle room here. If a factory is chosen by us, the workers will have a safe and stable working conditions.

SUPPLIERS COMPLIANCE ISSUE

The majority of a supplier’s compliance issues are usually discovered during this walkthrough. Common issues include machines lacking proper safety equipment, exposed or unmarked electrical wiring, chemicals that lack warning and information labels, and a lack of adequate personal protective equipment (PPE).

We will also make sure there is no child labor. Rest for sure the factory AASA chooses will have good and fair working conditions for all its staff. If a factory does not meet our strick social compliance standards they will not be given the opportunity to price out product.
