A pre-qualification assessment can help you select the best qualified and most appropriate suppliers.

Evaluation of Suppliers' Capacities. Production system, facilities, machinery, organizational structure, number of employees, work areas, etc.

Technical Documentation Review

Verification of documentation used in the manufacturing process and for quality control (QC).

Pre-production Inspection

This is carried out at the beginning of the production process and is based on your specifications. It focuses on the quality of components and materials used in the production process, product assembly processes, and products of the first production run. Pre-production inspection allows early, and consequently cost-saving, prevention of defective components/ assemblies.

In-production Inspection

This is carried out when at least 25% of the order has already been completed. It ensures that contractual obligations are met and the quality of products is maintained throughout the entire production process. If recommendations were given during the pre-production inspection, the in-production inspection will verify whether these recommendations have been followed effectively.

Final Random Inspection

This is carried out when at least 90% of the goods ordered are ready for export. Samples are selected at random, according to sampling standards and procedures. The inspection ensures that the entire production is in accordance with specifications, purchase orders, and so on.

Loading Supervision

This is carried out in the supplier's warehouse. The quality and quantity of goods to be shipped are checked to make sure that the right products will be delivered. The inspector may supervise the entire loading process, focusing on the state and quality of the shipment and the appropriateness of the conditions under which the loading is performed.

Testing or Supervision of Testing

If required, products may be tested at the nearest authorized testing laboratory or manufacturer's testing facilities.

Reporting

The inspector draws up an inspection report, including photos, and sends it to you within 24 hours.
