China Quality Control and Inspection

China Product Inspection Services

Chinese manufacturing output today is higher than the output of any other country in the world. Many companies with international supply chains rely on at least some Chinese suppliers to produce their products.

When working with manufacturers in China, establishing your own quality control processes, such as product inspections, is crucial. At Insight Quality Services, we serve as your quality inspection team on the ground to give you eyes at the factory.

We conduct several types of product inspections in China to help you detect quality issues early. These help you avoid receiving poor-quality products that do not meet your quality standards.

China Quality Control Inspection

Types of China Inspection Services

You can hire us to conduct inspections at various points during the production process — either before, during, or after production.

  • Pre-Shipment Inspection (Most Popular)
    Conducted once your order is 100% produced and at least 80% packaged. Verifies that products meet your quality standards before the manufacturer ships them overseas.
  • During Production Inspection
    Conducted once your order is at least 20% produced. Helps catch product defects early so you can avoid shipping delays.
  • Pre-Production Inspection
    Conducted before production starts to check raw materials or factory readiness.

Additionally, you can conduct the following types of inspections:

China Supplier Audits

When sourcing in China, it is essential to choose the right factory — one that can actually do what they say they will. A supplier assessment helps you determine whether or not a manufacturer can meet your requirements. As such, it is a helpful tool for quality assurance.

Supplier audits are also helpful for supplier quality management, and they allow you to get a higher-level view of how your Chinese factory is managing quality. This way, you can spot any problems at the process level before they turn into shipment-level issues.
