Product inspection and quality control in China
Inspecting is checking whether a product complies with specifications or has defects in various aspects: construction, finishes and functions. All the inspections carried out by the Asiaction product inspection team follow the process defined by the international standard ISO 2859-1 (ANSI / ASQC Z1.4-2003), also known as the AQL standard.
As an essential part of our quality control inspection in China offer, the product inspection allows you to get a clear picture of factory production at all times. Our inspectors can inspect products in China at three key moments before, during and at the end of production:
- Before production (IPC): an IPC check is carried out before or at the very beginning of production (<20%). We make sure that the factory prepares the production correctly and that the spare parts as well as the raw materials correspond to the technical specifications.
- During production (DUPRO): a DUPRO inspection takes place during production (between 20% and 80%), when the factory starts assembling your products. Our quality control inspectors randomly choose products on the production line to verify that they correspond to the products ordered, whether in terms of dimensions or functionalities. Our product inspection in China is a great tool to determine if the factory is following product quality specifications and schedule before it’s too late.
- At the end of production (FRI): this service, also called pre shipment inspection in China, takes place at the end of production (> 80%) and before the loading of the container. It consists in choosing at random a predefined number of products or cartons ready to be shipped then to carry out a complete control of functionalities, basic data (quantity, dimensions, markings, colors, etc.) as well as the realization of necessary tests (drop test, push / pull test, etc.). This is the ultimate intervention to get a good inventory and make sure you do not ship defective goods.

We plan with the factory, if you wish, the ideal day to intervene. The selected inspectors are informed of the quality specifications and coordinate with the factory.
On the day of the product inspection, Asiaction inspectors arrive at the factory in the morning around 9am and begin their work which will last until the closure of the factory in the evening if necessary. Inspectors generally rely on the workers made available by the factory to unpack, move and re-pack the cartons.
Our inspectors are subject to an ethical commitment that shapes their work and the relationship with the factories.
Upon completion of the inspection, our inspectors send the preliminary reports to our quality control team in our offices. This brief report is made so that to obtain the same day a quick status of the production.
The next day the inspectors and reviewers finalize the product inspection reports. The project manager then explains the results, while providing advice and explanations if necessary.
