Quality Control for Bags and Luggage

Quality control services for bags and luggage are essential in order to ensure that these products meet the highest standards of quality. By conducting thorough inspections at every stage of production – from raw materials to finished products – quality control teams can identify and correct any issues before they become costly errors. This not only protects consumers from receiving defective or unsafe products but also helps companies avoid costly recalls and other reputation-damaging issues. Bags and luggage go through a lot of wear and tear during their lifetime, so they must be built to last.

Quality control teams test for things like durability, water resistance, and other factors that could affect how well the product holds up over time. In addition, they also check for aesthetic defects that could make the bag or suitcase less attractive to customers. By catching these issues early on, quality control services can help keep costs down and customer satisfaction high.

Quality Control for Bags and Luggage

Social Compliance

Companies around the world often struggle with achieving transparency and adhering to social standards throughout their global supply chain. Bags and luggage have been hit especially hard in terms of worker rights controversies, so it is necessary to make sure local laws are respected, and workers are adequately protected. A social compliance audit can assist a company in assessing the integrity of its supply chain and allowing them to make sound decisions when selecting potential suppliers.

Social Compliance

Environmental Compliance

The environmental impacts of the bags and luggage industry are predominantly seen in the processes and materials used -for example, the chemicals employed in some tanning processes often find their way into waterways, ponds and fields, causing water and soil pollution. To ensure sustainability up and down their supply chain, companies must audit suppliers, implement ISO 14001 environmental management systems, and take all necessary steps to lessen their footprint. To do this successfully, Pro QC provides ISO 14001 gap analysis audits, assistance with certification plus consulting services.
