Trader Production Audit

All certified Trader customers may receive a Trader Production Audit. These audits have the objective to follow up on indications of violations of environmental or labour laws/the fundamental ILO conventions. These may have been identified in regular Audits or via Allegations or other relevant information. FLOCERT reserves the right to randomly select customers to receive a Trader Production Audit.

This audit type uses a specific checklist with additional checkpoints marked as “reactive” in the Compliance Criteria List for Traders.
