Many importers give high priority to the quality of their product. It’s one of the reasons they often spend a lot of time looking for the right supplier to work with. But when it comes to product quality control, many of the same importers expect the factory producing their goods to handle it. They often think that once they’ve provided their supplier with specifications for their product, their supplier is responsible for the product quality side of the transaction.

Unfortunately, this is also a common mistake that can lead to costly problems for importers, including:
- Production & shipping delays
- Dissatisfied customers
- Product recalls
- And others
But many importers, especially those just starting out, don’t know where to begin to control the quality of their products.
How can importers manage product quality?
One of the most reliable ways to confirm that your expectations for product quality are being met is by conducting product inspection. By checking the goods at the factory, inspection helps you know the condition and quality of your order before it ships.
Inspection can be done at various stages of production—either at the beginning to check parts and materials, during production or later when most of the goods are finished and packaged.
Which product inspection methods are available to importers?
It’s often challenging for importers—especially those with relatively less experience—to decide on the best method of inspection for them. That’s why we’ve written a FREE eBook on the subject: 4 Ways Importers Conduct Product Inspection.
Some importers may decide to rely on factory QC staff to conduct inspection. Others may take matters into their own hands by personally traveling to the factory to inspect. And then there are those importers who will hire a full-time inspector or third-party inspection company to verify the product at the factory. But balancing cost with quality control oversight is one challenge almost all importers have in common.
Thankfully, our eBook will not only introduce you to each of the inspection methods commonly used by importers, but it also covers:
- The advantages of each inspection method;
- The potential risks and downsides to each; and
- Which methods are better suited to different types of importers
