Product Inspections in China

By performing Chinese product inspection services, we can identify problems early to eliminate the underlying causes. Used correctly, source inspections save money by eliminating process problems and ensuring that the end product meets customer requirements and expectations. Pro QC provides quality control inspections across the entire country through teams of engineers located in major cities and manufacturing regions such as Shenzhen, Dongguan, Shanghai, Ningbo, Suzhou, Xiamen, Beijing, and many more. The main types of third-party quality inspections we offer in China include:

First Article Inspections (FAI)

Pro QC inspects first-article samples prior to volume production. This verifies that product specifications are being met and avoids unnecessary reengineering work later.

In-Process Inspections (IPI/DUPRO)

These on-site quality inspections in China evaluate samples of a client’s products selected during the manufacturing process. This confirms the quality of the client’s product and allows any necessary changes to be addressed early on, reducing rework time and costs.

Pre-Shipment Inspections (PSI)

During a pre-shipment inspection (PSI) in China, our quality engineers verify that finished goods conform to the client’s specifications.

Container Loading Supervision (CLS)

Pro QC ensures that proper methods are employed during product loading, and we verify counts on-site.

Line Pipe Inspection (Piping)

Pro QC verifies pipeline integrity in China through a large range of pipeline third-party inspection services such as visual inspections, dimensional inspections, welding inspections, coating inspections, painting inspections, nondestructive testing (NDT), magnetic flux leakage (MFL), ultrasonic testing (UT), hydrostatic testing verification, witness tests, storing and handling inspections, pipe inspections during and after manufacturing, loading inspection, and document review.

Pro QC’s range of QMS audits in China include:

ISO 9001 Audits

ISO 9001:2015 is a quality management system standard that supports the development of an organization toward customer satisfaction, continuous improvement, employee engagement, product quality, leadership commitment, and risk prevention. ISO 9001 audits are used to verify the quality management system of suppliers and assess their ability to deliver products matching client requirements. Pro QC provides ISO 9001 audits in China and helps companies reach full compliance with the standard.

ISO 13485 Audits

Suppliers and distributors of medical devices must fulfill more stringent and exhaustive requirements than in other sectors to demonstrate safety and effectiveness. Pro QC supports the industry with ISO 13485 audit services in China to verify the supplier compliance level and improve factory performance.
