Quality Assurance

QA overview

You don't have to worry about product quality with us, even for your most demanding customizations.

Very often misinterpreted for quality control, quality assurance is so vital a factor for any successful importing business from Yiwu China, but it's commonly downgraded to a token, one time quality check before shipment with many a Yiwu agent.

Instead of a single quality check before shipment, our quality assurance system consists of a series of proactive quality control processes. Dependent on manufacturing complexity of your product, and the extent of customization, we follow these procedures:

Strenuous and complicated as these actions seemed and really are, we stick to them to turn out the right product at the right time. You don't have to pay for them separately since all procedures are incorporated into Yiwu sourcing & buying service - total package and Buy from us directly.

Confirming approval sample

Before full production commences, we send sample for approval. The approval sample has to match your perfect sample, or meet all product specs. This sample approval process ensures factory understands your requirements and proves its manufacturing ability for the product. The approval sample will also be served as a very important inspection gauge later.

DUPRO inspection

Inspections carried out during production is called dupro inspection. This includes material IQC, incoming quality control and on-site inspections made at each key manufacturing processes to ensure conformity. Corrective actions and rework will be requested if any nonconformity found. Fixing problems at this stage is much less painful and key to on-time delivery.

AQL sampling

An Acceptable Quality Level is an inspection standard that prescribes the range of the number of defective products that is considered acceptable. When it comes to how many pieces should be checked and what the limit between acceptance or refusal, we rely on AQL sampling plan.

Laboratory testing

Laboratory test is required in some cases to ensure compliance and conformity of your products. For instance, fashion jewelry selling to US and EU needs to be tested for the content of hazardous elements such as lead, cadmium and nickel. We require a third-party, authoritative test report from supplier, and do additional lab test when necessary. The cost for the additional test is usually covered by supplier if the test result fails.

Pre-shipment inspection

Although rework or re-produce is not possible at this stage, pre-shipment inspection is the last safeguard against any problem before shipping. It's the most common and usually the ONLY quality check that a great majority of local agent do though. We do this final inspection to catch any departure from specs, including packing, marking, labelling, total quantity etc.
