Textile Auditing

Intertek has the vision to lead the way in developing innovative approaches while introducing new practices and standards. Our client-focused auditing services for Textile, Apparel and Footwear range from verifying individual transactions to full process inspection, development, safety and compliance checks.

Assessing the quality of a facility, its procedures and systems is an important job best done by trained auditors. Intertek can audit manufacturing facilities around the world, providing an independent assessment of the factory’s quality systems and an independent view of the facility’s capability of producing consistent quality footwear.

Intertek also offers a comprehensive inspection program based upon statistical analysis of finished goods (sampling according to ANSI/ASQ Z1.4, ISO 2859, BS 6001). To ensure conformance with pre-approved samples, our inspectors randomly select finished goods, compare these with established criteria, and report their findings based upon predetermined Acceptance Quality Level (AQL).
