General Booking Policy And Conditions

1. Regular bookings for product inspection services (During-Production, Final Inspection, Re-Inspection, etc.) in Mainland China, Vietnam, India and Pakistan must be made at least 2 working days* in advance (e.g., services on Wednesday must be booked by the previous Monday by 9am). FOR ALL INSPECTION SERVICES OUTSIDE OF THE ABOVE AREAS: 5 working days of notice is required for bookings.

2. In the instance that your booking is received less than 2 working days*  (outside of Mainland China, Vietnam, India and Pakistan 5 working days*) in advance, InTouch will use its best efforts to accommodate your request, however, note that such “rush” bookings are based strictly on availability and it is therefore likely that such bookings cannot be accommodated.

3. Cancellations – Cancellations must be made with BOTH a phone call AND email to the InTouch office.

  1. Late Cancellations:
    1. FOR ALL SERVICES IN MAINLAND CHINA, VIETNAM, INDIA AND PAKISTAN – For cancellations made less than 1 working day* before the service start date (e.g. cancelled after 9am the working day before the planned service), a charge of $125 USD will be incurred.
    2. FOR ALL SERVICES OUTSIDE OF THE ABOVE AREAS – For cancellations made less than 2 working day* before the service start date (e.g., cancelled after 5pm Monday for Thursday’s service), a charge of $125 USD will be incurred.
  2.  Last-Minute Cancellations:
    1. FOR ALL SERVICES IN MAINLAND CHINA, VIETNAM, INDIA AND PAKISTAN – For cancellations made after 5pm the day before the service start date, or where auditors are denied access or not allowed to perform the service as planned, the full cost of the originally planned service will be billed.
    2. FOR ALL INSPECTION SERVICES OUTSIDE OF THE ABOVE AREAS – For cancellations made less than 1 working day* before the service start date (e.g., cancelled after 5pm Monday for Wednesday’s service), or where auditors are denied access or not allowed to perform the service as planned, the full cost of the originally planned service will be billed.
  3. For cancelled services, in some cases there are travel expenses such as flight or train tickets that have already been incurred by InTouch. If these expenses cannot be refunded, the cost or cancellation fee incurred by InTouch will be billed to the client.

4. All factory audit services (Supplier Review, Social Compliance, C-TPAT, etc.) require 5 working days of notice for scheduling purposes. Cancellation conditions apply as above.

5. All booking requests are subject to InTouch availability.

6. The required percentage of goods completed and in final packaging for inspection is generally specified in the QC Checklist. In any case where it is unspecified, the requirement will be considered 100%. Any exception to this policy must be clearly communicated by the client.

7. We STRONGLY URGE that all SKUs are stored neatly and together in the warehouse to allow for easy access, counting, and sample drawing. If you are a vendor, please advise your factories of this.

8. A fee of $45 per auditor per hour applies to abnormal delays resulting from the supplier’s actions or inaction, or from circumstances that InTouch was not informed of in advance (e.g. refusal on the part of the supplier to cooperate with the service process, goods located in separate locations, non-availability of supplier representatives, requests for auditors to wait or perform services later than planned, etc.). Additional travel expenses may also be incurred and billed as a result of delays.

9. Services on weekends and public holidays at the location of service are subject to additional charges as such: Saturday (1.2 X actual man-day count), Sunday (1.5 X actual man-day count), public holiday (2.0 X actual man-day count).

10. Force Majeure – In the event of an “Act of God” in which InTouch cannot undertake the booked service but has already dispatched an employee and borne expenses, the client will be billed those expenses incurred in full. InTouch will not charge the service fees for the missed service, and will re-schedule the service for the next available date.

11. According to InTouch company policy, no benefit of any kind shall be offered to any InTouch staff.

12. *“Working day” refers to Monday – Friday, excluding all Chinese Public Holidays. Saturday is considered a working day solely for the purpose of receiving booking and cancellation requests for services in Mainland China only. FOR ALL SERVICES OUTSIDE OF MAINLAND CHINA: “Working day” refers to Monday through Friday, excluding all Chinese Public Holidays. Saturday is not considered a working day for scheduling purposes.

13. FOR ALL SERVICES OUTSIDE OF MAINLAND CHINA: Inspection reports are issued the working day following completion of the service. For example, a service completed on Friday will have the report issued the following Monday. For services conducted during Chinese public holidays, a $50 USD report issuing fee will apply if the report is required during the holiday. Otherwise, the report will be issued on the next Chinese business day.
