The importance of quality control in manufacturing cannot be emphasized enough. It can deliver the promise of a design innovation, or break it. It can spell the difference between the success and the failure of a product or a business. Ensuring quality, after all, guarantees branding, customer loyalty, repeat orders and new customers.
Companies looking to source quality products or components outside their borders cannot depend entirely on air, road or sea deployment to bring them to market. They have to be involved in the production process in some way, either directly or through other channels, and be able to conduct quality control inspection. This is to make sure every item shipped is based on the same high standard with no defect or other quality issues.
The Importer’s Guide: Product Quality Control is a walk-through of the inspection process and discusses the steps and options available to companies sourcing products overseas. It covers the types of quality inspections and their requirements, a sample checklist, and industry- and country-specific standards on materials, products and manufacturing. The book also shares tips on how to resolve post-shipment disputes.
