An Overview of Final Inspection Services in China

When your production is coming to an end, an inspector visits your supplier when 80% of the products have been packed. This inspection is the final moment where a product quality inspection can be conducted before your supplier concludes the production. This is a crucial moment where you, the buyer, can have complete confidence in the quality of work your supplier produced

What We Inspect

A final inspection in China is an in-depth check, which reviews the following aspects of a completed production:

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

Maintaining Confidence in Your Supplier

As a Chinese final inspection company, we give you, the buyer, confidence that the product you paid for is the product you will receive. China Final inspections help your business and brand with the following:

  • Ensure your supplier delivers the product you paid for
  • Ensures that you are not paying for any defects or broken products
  • Ensures that the safety and compliance requirements have been met so you can safely import
  • Protects your brand from bad quality and product defects
  • Protects your customers from injury and potential liability by testing from critical issues.

Internationally Accepted Inspection Solution

Our trained inspectors rely on the internationally accepted inspection sampling standards to compare your predefined product specifications with your supplier’s production. When applicable, we rely on statistical samplings defined through the AQL tables to give us a detailed understanding of your supplier’s exact specifications and production quality. After your final inspection, we will deliver a detailed report which provides a comprehensive review of the product quality.

Last Minute Bookings Accepted

We understand that times can change, delays are inevitable, and last-minute requirements to perform an assessment happen. Because of this, we are flexible with our booking times. We guarantee that we can have an inspector anywhere in China within 48-hour’s notice. If your inspection request is more urgent than that, send us an email or give us a call, and we will do our best to arrange an inspector for you.

It acts as the turning point at the end of your production. If an issue exists, a China final inspection seeks to identify it and save you from losing untold amounts of money.

Frequently Asked Questions

A final inspection is performed after a factory production ends, but before the products are entirely packaged. In most instances, 80% of the products will be packaged for export, and 20% will not be packaged. This allows the inspector to check the products and the packaging to provide a clear picture of the over quality.

A final inspection is the last inspection performed at a factory before the products leave the factory warehouse. This inspection acts as the last possible instance where a supplier could correct found issues before the products are delivered to the customer.
