SATRA Cutting Award for members
The SATRA Cutting Award is a way of improving and maintaining quality in the cutting room during the manufacture of footwear and covers the complete cutting process.
SATRA auditors will examine various stages of the cutting procedure including incoming inspection, storage, physical conditions in the cutting area, space, layout, lighting, access and equipment maintenance.
The quality of the cut pieces, and the training cutters have received, is also checked. SATRA will monitor the overall facilities of the company and its ability to consistently supply the product. Footwear manufacturers that achieve a required standard of competence can apply for SATRA registration.
