SGS and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Federation of Textile Industries – AFTEX – verify the quality of the garments produced by members of the Source ASEAN Full Service Alliance (SAFSA).
We work with AFTEX to review the alliance’s quality service standards and ensure that the SAFSA members forming “virtual vertical factories” (VVFs) are all compliant. Adherence to the audited standards builds credibility internationally and means that all of the VVFs produce superior quality garments that satisfy the requirements of the world’s buyers.
The VVFs extend across the supply chain from fabric and garment sourcing to pattern making, sample making and logistics. To help existing and prospective SAFSA VVFs prepare for a standards inspection, our audit checklist ranges from a textile mill being able to interact with designers to a garment factory being able to provide export credits.
