Quality Assurance & Quality Control Services for the Textile Industry

Since 1984, Pro QC International has supported designers, luxury brands, and large retailers in ensuring quality and securing their global supply chain with factory audits, social compliance and environmental audits, and textile inspection services.

Textile manufacturers must meet ever-increasing consumer demand for high-quality, environmentally friendly products that are made in a healthy working environment. For all companies manufacturing or purchasing textiles, quality control inspections and audits are essential to managing the risks involved in textile production. These risks arise at every stage of design and production and include the increasing complexity of supply chains, quality defects, supplier reliability and performance, and noncompliance with environmental and labor standards.

With nearly 40 years of experience in the textile sector, Pro QC offers customized solutions to help companies protect their reputation and bring high-quality products to the market. Our range of quality assurance and quality control services is designed to address the industry’s main challenges and includes third-party textile inspections, factory and supplier audits, social compliance audits (SA8000, SMETA, WRAP, etc.), ISO 14001 audits, preparation for certification, and supplier management services.

At Pro QC, we are committed to meeting our clients’ expectations by providing high-quality, cost-effective, and tailored services. We deliver our range of textile quality control solutions in over 88 countries, including China, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Germany, India, Italy, Turkey, United States, Spain, France, Pakistan, the Netherlands, Indonesia, Cambodia, Belgium, South Korea, United Kingdom, Taiwan, Poland, Japan, Thailand, Mexico, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, and many more countries.

Textile Quality

Quality defects in the textile and garment industry are often related to dimensions, fraying fabrics, unfinished edges, open seams, incorrect thread selection, skipped stitches, dye spots, packaging, and incorrect labeling. Pro QC’s team of quality inspectors and textile experts conduct on-site quality control inspections to identify those defects and ensure product quality matches our clients’ specifications and expectations. A standard textile quality control inspection covers the following elements: quantity, package & packaging, product style/construction, logo, labeling, markings, accessories, measurement, functional and performance tests, and more.

Textile Quality

Social Compliance

Companies often face difficulties ensuring transparency and social compliance in their global supply chain. The textile industry has experienced many scandals related to worker rights. It is essential to ensure local regulations are respected and that working conditions are not harmful to employees. A social compliance audit allows a company to assess the integrity of its supply chain and make the right choice when selecting a new supplier. Several auditable standards apply to the textile industry, including SA8000, WRAP, SMETA, and BSCI.

Environmental Compliance

The textile industry affects the planet on many levels, including water, air pollution, chemicals, electricity consumption, and waste. Implementing an environmental management system such as ISO 14001 helps mitigate its impact on the environment. Pro QC provides ISO 14001 gap analysis audits, preparation for certification, and consulting services.
