Product inspection is an important part of the manufacturing and quality control process. But instead of using a third-party company to conduct inspection, some importers opt to use factory staff.

InTouch Client Managers John Niggl and George Huang discuss the factory's in-house quality control team and the potential benefits and consequences for importers when they solely rely on the factory's quality control staff for product inspection.  In this manufacturing podcast episode, you'll learn about:
