Get an AQL Inspection in China

Guided Imports Accepted Quality Limit inspection service applies the ISO 2859 standard and tables while offering the most competitive pricing and quickest turn-around in the industry.





An AQL (Accepted Quality Limit) inspection service uses the internationally accepted ISO 2859 sampling and inspection tables to define how assessments should be performed. Learn more about how our China Quality Inspection and Control team follow these tables during a China AQL inspection and provide you with a comprehensive report.

Using AQL Tables for Your Inspection:

One of the only ways to ensure your product sampling is random is to rely on statistical sampling to define how many samples should be selected and where they should be picked from a production batch. Statistical sampling ensures our AQL inspectors in China don’t need to guess how many pieces need to be chosen and how many issues found are considered acceptable. As a leading China AQL inspection company, wer rely on statistically recognized tables that define the exact number of samples our inspector must check and how many defective products are acceptable.


Importance of a China AQL Inspection

The benefit of getting an AQL inspection in China is the standardization and accountability buyers can hold their suppliers to by quickly defining the AQL level a factory shall adhere to. The accepted quality limit explains to the supplier the number of considered allowable and not allowable issues. Guided Imports trained China AQL inspection agents follow these internationally accepted standards during the production and provide both the buyer and the supplier with a detailed report on the product quality findings. There is no other methodology for inspection standardization that is both internationally accepted and understood by buyers and Chinese suppliers.

Get a Quality Check Before Starting Production

During a pre-production inspection (PPI), Guided Imports will send an inspector to the supplier’s facility either just before the production begins or as the first round of products is produced. Buyers may define what they wish to have inspected, but in most cases, a PPI check any of the following four areas:

  • Raw material check
  • Inspection of Prototype
  • Inspection of “golden sample,” or the first sample made with the same materials as the production
  • Mass-production process

Get an AQL Quality Check During Production

During production inspection (DUPRO), Guided Imports will send an inspector while the products are in production. In most instances, this inspection occurs when 20% – 80% of the production is complete. Inspectors will rely on the AQL statistical sampling to check the following:

  • Product functionality
  • Product performance
  • Product durability
  • Overall appearance
  • Product size and weight

Get an AQL Quality Check Pre-Shipment

A pre-shipment inspection (PSI), Guided Imports, can send an inspector to the supplier’s production facility just before the products are fully packaged. In most instances, an inspector will check the products after 80% of the batch has been packaged. In this AQL inspection, the inspector can check for the following:

  • Quantity verification
  • Random sampling
  • Cosmetic and workmanship check
  • Product specification conformity
  • Electrical safety testing
  • Mechanical safety testing
  • Function testing for garments
  • Country-specific compliance conformity

Get an AQL Quality Check of Your Container

During a container loading supervision inspection (CLS), we can send inspectors to the loading warehouse to ensure the correct products and quantity are correctly loading into the container.

  • Product quantity check
  • Conformity to product specifications
  • Conformity to product quality
  • Conformity to packaging requirements
  • Container condition check
  • Proper container loading process
