what we inspect

(included in the report)

Quantities

On site, our inspectors check that the factory prepared the agreed-upon number of products. We verify various kinds of quantities:

  • Total quantity ordered/produced,
  • Quantity of products packed,
  • Quantity of products not packed,
  • Quantity of cartons packed,
  • Quantity of cartons not packed.

Workmanship & appearance defects

We randomly choose a number of products (set by the AQL standard) and search for visible defects. We arrange these defects in 3 categories (critical, major or minor) and the number of defects in each category will tell you whether you should accept or refuse your order.

Measurements & tests

We check that the products’ sizes match those from your purchase order. According to the type of product, we will check its electrical power, its functions, its packaging strength, and anything specific to your product.

Products specifications

We check that all the specifications from your purchasing order match those of the manufactured products. We test the functions, the electric power and plug, the colours and the material.

Marking & labels

We check that all markings, printing and label match those specified from your purchase order.

Packing

We check that the packing from the factory matches your purchase order. Especially if you ordered flat packing or Mail Order Packing (MOP).

Custom Checkpoints

If you have specific needs and checkpoints, just let us know during the inspection preparation and we’ll easily add them into our process so that you get the inspection you need.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT PRODUCT INSPECTION

What is a man-day?

Every inspection is performed by a number of persons over a number of days. Most inspections are made by one man within one day, that’s 1 man-day. However, it is possible that some inspections require more people and/or more time.

For example, we could send 2 inspectors to perform an inspection within 1 day, that’s 2 man-day.

 

Examples:
1 inspector on 1 day = 1 man-day
2 inspectors on 1 day = 2 man-day
1 inspector on 3 days = 3 man-day
2 inspectors on 2 days = 4 man-day

What is the AQL?

All about the AQL standards here.

 

Unless specified otherwise, we do not inspect 100% of the production. We choose a number of products randomly, based on the AQL standard. 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).

HOW TO CONTROL THE QUALITY OF A PRODUCT?

Have your goods inspected with ASIACTION before they leave the Chinese factory. An ASIACTION inspector will visit the factory at any time during the production process and will send you a complete report of his visit with pictures and videos.

 

We verify the product specifications that you have agreed with the factory. We also verify the industry standards.

 

Products can be the wrong color, the wrong material, the wrong dimensions.

WHAT ARE THE QUALITY PROBLEMS OFTEN FOUND?

Defects are the result of poor workmanship or an incorrect production process.

Defects are also the result of tests performed by the inspector to verify the general requirements of a specific product type. For example, the loading capacity of a chair or the strength of the paint. Defects may also occur during special tests you ask us to perform.

 

The most frequent quality problems are:

 

  • Non-conformity of colors, materials, dimensions, functionality
  • Dirtiness
  • Poor finish
  • Scratches
  • Broken pieces
  • Dangerousness: sharp edge, nail, resistance, electrical leak, etc.

WHY INSPECT PACKAGING AND MARKING IN QUALITY CONTROL?

Packing may be a specific requirement on your part, but it is also an important aspect of product safety. During transport, especially in express shipments, fragile cartons and inadequate packing will not protect the goods. The goods may be damaged before they reach the final consumer.

YOUR PRODUCT IS NOT LISTED OR YOU NEED A QUALITY CONTROL AT ANOTHER TIME?

Contact us and tell us when you need ASIACTION to intervene.

 

We can also build together your inspection.

WHAT IS A QUALITY CONTROL?

Quality control ensures that the goods meet the buyer's specifications. It is a process that can save you money by correcting problems before the goods leave the Chinese territory.

WHY A QUALITY CONTROL?

Quality control consists in inspecting the goods at any time during the production process to ensure their conformity before the order is shipped. This allows us to avoid non-conformity of the products to your requirements and to avoid scams.

 

For products coming from countries such as China, we recommend to conduct a quality control before the departure of the products. Once the goods arrive at their destination, it is too late to correct quality problems.

 

Following the quality control, ASIACTION will send you a complete inspection report and your goods will leave the factory only when you have given your approval.

HOW IS THE QUALITY CONTROL DONE?

The quality control (or goods inspection) is done by sending an ASIACTION inspector in the factory at any time of the production anywhere in China. Several aspects are inspected:

 

  • Quantities
  • Manufacturing and aspect defects
  • Measurement and functional tests
  • Product specifications
  • Marking and labels
  • Packing
  • Special inspection points according to your requirements

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF QUALITY CONTROL?

There are several types of quality control. With ASIACTION, it is possible to make a goods inspection at each step of the production process:

 

  • Before the start of production
  • When the production starts
  • During production
  • At the end of the production
  • Before loading the container
  • During the loading of the container

 

Contact our experts and schedule your quality control quickly.

HOW TO CONTROL 100% OF YOUR PRODUCTION IN CHINA?

It is possible to have the totality of your production controlled in China. ASIACTION will contact your factory and inform us about the number of inspection days needed to control the quality of your total production.
