Advantages and Methods of Selecting a Third-party Inspection Agency

27 Mar , 2023

As we know, the word 'inspection' may be used in daily business practice. Inspection refers to the verification of products, processes, functions, etc. – referencing samples, specifications, drawings, technical data sheets, etc. In our daily lives, when we purchase any item from the market, we verify the product to ensure that it meets our requirements in terms of quality, quantity, etc.

What is the inspection process of 3rd-party inspection agencies?

When a buyer or a supplier seeks to have a product inspected by a third-party inspection agency, such as wholesale QC inspection services, the inspection agency generally requires the following checks: product description, name, quantity, product number; location of inspection; product specification sheet, engineering drawing, QAP, inspection checklist, etc.; detailed explanation of the type of inspection required for the product; inspection date and deadline.

Based on the above information, the third-party inspection agency conducts an internal review to assess whether they can carry out the inspection according to customer requirements. If the inspection agency finds that they have sufficient capability to carry out third-party inspection according to the above requirements, the inspection agency agrees with their client and sends the formal contract along with the third-party inspection fee. Based on accepting the third-party inspection fee and accepting the terms and conditions of the contract, the third-party inspection executes the inspection. These are the processes related to 3rd-party inspection agencies.
