This are the 10 tips for AsiInspection to import quality: 1. find providers in Asia there are two ways to give to them. Well through Internet (in sites like Alibaba.com, Made-in-China.com, GlobalSources.com, etc) well attending fairs of all types where there is Asian exhibitors. 2 Make a good study before making the final choice of vendors in order to validate manufacturing capabilities.
An audit of factory is the best choice. 3 Ask the factory a sample of the final product (sample are usually charged and is considered the first sale of the Asian to us). We recommend making a test laboratory to the same. 4. Make sure that your needs and specifications are covered by the manufacturer. So send all kinds of written comments, photos and drawings. 5. Provide detailed specifications to its suppliers and clarify the level of quality required. Likewise specify to where we would be willing to accept possible defects. 6. Perform a quality inspection at the factory during the process of manufacture and before shipment. The last-minute surprises are not good counsellors. 7 Be sure to comply with the rules and directives applicable to your product (REACH, RoHS, CPSIA etc) asking and demanding to the provider if you have a sample of the product tested and certified by an accredited laboratory. Subsequently, verify it ourselves. 8 Plan everything in advance and make the transport of goods with plenty of time to avoid unforeseen. 9. It is highly recommended to physically meet your provider and spend time with him in order to strengthen the business relationship through personal relationships. Culturally Asians need to deal with the person to do business with it. 10. Never accept the explanation of a no or impossible.
