Here’s what’s involved in our sourcing work in China:
- Pre-production Inspection (PPI):
This inspection work is done before we place an order. We look into the factory and check their certificates and scan their annual report and employees. We also make sure that they can deliver products within the given time frame. We explain the details of your requirements and sign contracts in your favour. We then send you a detailed report and after your approval we give the instruction to start production.
- During Production Inspection (DPI):
We visit the factory during production and make sure that everything is going exactly as per agreement
and the product is coming back exactly as described. A report will be sent to you with full details.
- Final Production Inspection (FPI):
Once production is finished we will visit the factory and test the quantity. We will then send you a report
of the final goods quality and bring it to our warehouse.
- Pre-shipment Inspection (PSI):
Before we ship the goods we will recheck the products for a final time and send you the final report. Once you approve it we will then arrange shipment.
