FACTORY EVALUATION - Success in manufacturing starts with the supplier selection process. There are a range of factory audits that we can undertake to give our clients the transparency they need to identify the right partners, including manufacturing audits, ethical audits (SMETA, BSCI), technical audits, and also, where appropriate the client’s own audit process can be followed should there be any specific aspects that need to also be addressed.
PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT - After any development, our quality team can check your samples against the product specification and compile a technical inspection report for the client. This is particularly useful if the sample is large and reduces the need to ship/courier the sample to the client.
PRODUCT CONSULTING - We provide advisory services to our clients on the relevant mandatory and recommended product standards relevant to your market. The importer of record is responsible for all regulatory quality requirements and we can help advise on what tests need to be undertaken in this regard.
DURING PRODUCTION INSPECTION - Where specific manufacturing risk has been identified, we conduct inspections during the production to isolate any issues earlier on in the manufacturing process so that they can be addressed and resolved. It can also be used to ensure that the production is on time where there is a particularly short lead time. This may be a new product design, a new factory or where there have been production issues previously.
PRE-SHIPMENT INSPECTION - This is the last inspection before the goods are released and is commonly conducted against AQL (Accepted Quality Level) statistical samples in line with the client’s requirements. If any production run should fail the reject pre-determined reject rates, then having briefed our client, we implement an agreed corrective action plan (CAP), which can be a wider statistical sample being checked, products being remade or they are accepted. The key is having the upstream visibility to make decisions prior to the goods being shipped.
LOADING INSPECTION - We provide this service to check the quality of the container and to be sure that the goods are correctly loaded in full. In particular, where a container is not full, care needs to be taken to ensure that the cartons are loaded in a manner that reduces the risk of damage during transit. Our report will show records of the container being sealed and the seal number to ensure that there is no tampering of the container until you receive it.
PRODUCT CHECKING LIST DEV - Based on our product expertise, we devise and develop comprehensive product checking lists that are aligned to our client’s quality requirements.
