The following is a general outline of the audit procedures.  The actual audits do not necessarily follow this order; however, all steps as indicated below are completed during the audit as applicable.  In addition, if further steps or documents are needed to ensure a complete understanding of the facility situation, ELEVATE (formerly Level Works Ltd.) will request the facility to provide all such information as necessary.  Your full cooperation is appreciated to ensure a smooth and beneficial audit for all parties involved. 


·         We request a senior facility management representative be present during this audit.  This person shall have full knowledge of the facility operation, the authority to comply with  ELEVATE (formerly Level Works Ltd.)  requests, and to respond accurately on behalf of the facility owners and management. 

·         审核工厂需要安排一名高级管理人员代表陪同审核。该人员应清楚了解工厂的各项工作,能够配合达岸(原香港达标咨询有限公司)的审核工作,并且能够代表工厂主和管理层做出准确的回应。

·         We also request the production manager and personnel manager be present during this audit.  These individuals are necessary to answer a series of questions regarding production capacity, machines, lead times, hiring practices, and payroll records. 

·         另外,生产经理和人事经理也须陪同核审,以回答关于生产力、器械、生产时间、雇佣政策和工资记录等一系列的问题。

·         For most audits,  ELEVATE (formerly Level Works Ltd.)  auditors confirm a specific audit date in advance with the facility.  On occasion, and if instructed by Costco, this audit may be unannounced.

·         大多数情况下,达岸(原香港达标咨询有限公司)审核员会在审核前通知工厂,确定审核审核日期。但在个别情况下,如Costco公司有特殊指示,那么则会根据指示进行突击审核。

·         Auditors arrive at the facility and provide their business cards and identification badges upon entry.  Please be sure to notify your entry security guards in advance of their visit. 

·         审核员到达工厂后,在入口处出示名片和工作证,请提前通知大门警卫审核员的到访。

·         Audit is conducted by a team of 2-3 auditors, and takes up one full working day, depending on the size of the facility.  Occasionally, if necessary, the audit may occur over two days with one auditor.  The auditing team will consist of fluent native language speakers (often with more than one dialect ability) and readers of the manufacturing country’s language

·         根据工厂规模的大小,审核工作由2-3名审核员负责完成,耗时一个完整的工作日。某些审核工作只有一名审核员负责,则需要两个或以上的工作日完成。审核小组中将有一名精通本地语言的成员(通常掌握一种以上的方言),并且能读懂本土语言书写的文件。

·         Auditors will hold an opening meeting with the facility’s designated management person of authority, production and personnel managers, and any other managers you wish to have present.  During this meeting, the auditors will describe the audit format. 

·         审核员将与工厂指定的管理人员、生产和人事经理以及其他相关人员进行首次会议,介绍审核安排。

·         Whenever possible, a representative of the Costco supplier, if this is not the same as the facility, should also be present.

·         若供应商与工厂不是同一企业,那么Costco供应商代表应当参与到审核中。

·         No other unrelated parties shall be present during this audit.

·         其他无关人等不得参与到审核中。


Key Activities Conducted by the ELEVATE Auditors:



1.     Review of facility policies or handbooks and licenses,查阅工厂政策、手册和营业执照。

2.     Review of employment contracts as required by the country’s labor laws. 查阅国家劳动法所要求的员工劳动合同。

3.     Review of worker age documentation and verification. 查核员工年龄证明文件。

4.     Access to 12 months’ worth of payroll/time card documents.  In depth review of 3 months’ worth of payroll documentation, including but not limited to payroll records, time cards, production sheets, attendance records, proof of insurance payment or tax payment, etc.  These documents are necessary in order to determine if the facility is in full compliance with the country’s national and regional labor laws on minimum wage, overtime wage, overtime and holiday hours, etc.  


5.     Confidential interviews with employees are fundamental and required for the success of the assessment. However, employee interviews require great care and sensitivity to local conditions, and must always be conducted in a manner that ensures that employees will not face retaliation as a result of their participation. Specifically, ELEVATE (formerly Level Works) staff is expected to crosscheck information gathered from other information sources, detect potential areas of concern, and to assess the awareness level of the employees during each interview. Our role during the assessment is not to advocate, debate, or argue with employees for any reason. 


6.     Tour of the facility floor to evaluate health and safety conditions, production capacity, use of outside subcontractors, waste water treatment, chemical and hazardous material containment, etc.


7.     Tour of the dormitories and dining room facilities, if provided, to evaluate health and safety conditions (if applicable). 


8.     Taking of photos as necessary to document non-compliance areas, if any.


9.     Supply Chain Security checklist to identify/review compliance with anti-terrorism preventative measures


10.  If product made at this facility is subject to quota for entry into the customer’s destination country, review and verification of customs and quota documents, shipping invoices and country of origin documentation.



Activities at Conclusion of Audit:



·         Auditors discuss the results with your designated facility management personnel, answer any of your questions, provide a Corrective Action Summary, and clarify the local labor and environmental laws as necessary

·         During this meeting, management will be provided a final opportunity to clarity factory policies and practices as they relate to each non-conformity. This is of particularly importance when inconsistent and/or unclear data has been collected. 

·         总结会议期间,管理人员将会有最后的机会阐述每一个不符合点相关的政策和工厂实际运作情况。当审核员收集到不一致或不清晰的信息时,这个环节至关重要。

·         Auditors provide facility with recommendations for corrective actions to make all required future improvements with the goal of 100% compliance within a time table to be determined by and acceptable to Costco
