Guided Imports China In-Process (or DUPRO) Inspection Overview

A China in-process inspection, also known as a during production inspection, or DUPRO, is an inspection that takes place at the time your products are in production, and after 20% – 80% of the order has been completed and packed. This inspection aims to identify areas of concern and provide for an immediate opportunity to rectify mistakes. A Chinese DUPRO inspection company acts as your unbiased quality control agent, giving you actionable feedback on your supplier’s overall quality and performance when they are fulfilling your order.

What We Inspect

A China in-process inspection is a comprehensive check, which reviews the following aspects of production:

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

Benefits of Inspections During a Production Run

There are three potential milestones in most production processes where it is advisable to send a third-party inspection company to visit your supplier and inspect your production. Those times are, right as the production is about to begin, while the production is ongoing, just as the production comes to an end.

A China during production inspection is the only inspection that provides you with a detailed understanding of the production process, as the products are being manufactured. While inspecting pre-production can tell you if your supplier is ready to begin, and checking goods pre-shipment can tell you if the products you ordered are the same as what was made, a China in-process or during production inspection identifies if the supplier is following the production plan and making the products according to your expectations.

How China In-Process Inspections Help You

A China in-process inspection provides you with a clear understanding of the production process based on the time of inspection. But what can a business gain by finding out about the tiny details of a production while it is taking place?

  • Identifying issues that can be quickly rectified.
  • Making small quality adjustments that improve the overall product quality.
  • Avoid financial loss from issues that otherwise would not have been caught.
  • Ensuring the production schedule maintains course.
  • Increasing customer satisfaction by systematically identifying quality improvements.

Ensuring An On-time Production

As the inspection is underway, the supplier must maintain its scheduled timeline to fulfill the order without delay. These inspection checks seek to filter out any area of concern, leading to quality mistakes or timeline alternations. The sooner the issues can be identified, the faster the supplier can work on a corrective action plan.

Guided Imports Inspection Standards

Anytime Guided Imports inspectors visit a supplier to perform a quality inspection, we rely on internationally accepted standards, which guide us on the exact process to conduct a thorough inspection check. Most of our assessments follow the statistical sampling procedure published under ISO 2859-1, and ANSI/ASQC Z1.4.

These standards define the selection order of collecting samples and guide us on determining whether a supplier’s production meets the client’s specifications. By relying on these standards, our customers can maintain confidence by making an informed decision on the overall production quality.
