Inspection Services

Quality inspections, also known as product inspections or product verification is a process to check the status and quality of your goods, during all steps of production in order to ensure that you will get what you ordered.

The quality inspection will help you to make sure that all your requirements, specifications and criteria you have given to a factory are being taken into account and implemented properly.

The quality inspections are usually performed according to international quality control standards such as ANSI/ASQ Z1.4-2003 (Equivalent to ISO 2589-1), but we also perform quality inspections as per your instructions and criteria and according to our expertise and long experience.

Which inspection should I choose?

Ideally, booking product inspections at all stages of the production will ensure maximum protection.

In order to save on costs, most buyers purchasing low to medium volumes will only choose to inspect at 2 or 3 steps of the production, and the most popular inspections are the During Production and the Pre shipment Inspection. Note that we can help you determine what inspection service you shall put in place depending on your exact situation.

 

What should I do in the case of a failed inspection?
 

  • You should study the product inspection report in detail and discuss results and future actions with your factory.
  • You should also consider our defect sorting service on a specific sampling size or on the full quantity.
