We believe that quality is much more than just the strength of our packaging. A perfect big bag is much more than just a high-quality bag. A perfect big bag, or FIBC, is produced in outstanding production facilities, in a sustainable way, by the best people who work and live under good conditions. Of course, the best way to assess these conditions is seeing it with your own eyes. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, we regularly organised factory audits and visits to our FIBC production facilities to allow (potential) customers to examine our state-of-the art, sustainable and socially responsible facilities.
These audits are part of our customer’s Quality Assurance programs and are often a prerequisite for doing business or for implementing new projects, especially when it comes to sensitive products such as food, pharma or specialty chemicals. In times when travelling and visiting is not possible, a different approach is needed to comply with requests for audits and factory visits. This different approach is the LC Packaging Remote Audit Programme. Several online audits have already taken place last year at Dutch-Bangla Pack Ltd. (DBPL). An online audit generally takes a full day, and one of these online audits has so far resulted in an extension of a customer’s approval for the most sensitive food clean FIBCs!
To allow for audit requests, we have put together the LC Packaging Remote Audit Programme. The purpose of this programme is to give an auditor a just-as-good-as-physical audit experience using remote tools. This programme consists of sharing the requested documents and questionnaires upfront, followed by 2 half days (e.g. 2 mornings) of video meetings.
An example of the topics that can be covered during the video meetings:
Depending on the needs of a specific (potential) customer, this programme can be customised further. For more information about the LC Packaging Remote Audit Programme, please contact our International Quality Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
