GLOSSARIES

INITIAL PRODUCTION INSPECTION (IPI)
The Initial Production Inspection checks the materials or components stored by the manufacturer for the production of your order. It also inspects the initial production run. This type of inspection identifies defective materials or components, as well as deviations from the customer’s specifications at an early stage, thereby minimizing the occurrence of non-conformities and allowing for timely corrections where necessary

DURING PRODUCTION INSPECTION (DUPRO)
The During Production Inspection or DUPRO checks semi-finished or finished goods and takes place when a minimum 20% of your order has been produced. A DUPRO improves your control over production, allows timely correction of defects and improvements to quality. It also allows you to verify that your order is produced according to schedule. Corrective action can be taken accordingly.

FINAL RANDOM INSPECTION (FRI)
The Final Random Inspection checks finished products when at least 80% of your order has been produced and export-packed. Samples are selected at random, according to AQL sampling standards and procedures. The FRI ensures that the production complies with your specifications and/or the terms of your purchase order or letter of credit.

LOADING SUPERVISION (LS)
Loading Supervision checks that your order is complete and securely loaded into a container before shipment. This inspection ensures that the goods delivered by the factory are compliant with your requirements in terms of quantity, assortment, and packaging. LS also ensures that the export cartons are securely loaded into the container, and that the container is in good condition (clean, dry, damage and odor free).

FACTORY AUDIT
The Factory Audit is performed by a qualified auditor according to a framework based on ISO 9001 standards and the client’s specific requirements. The scope of the audit includes assessing production facilities and the in-house quality control system (incoming goods inspection, in-process controls, final online inspections); packaging material management; non-conforming material handling; communication, document control & workflow; and complaints management. This service also includes reports containing general factory information, such as monthly production capabilities, the type of machinery used, the main products produced, and in-house / outsourced operations. The Factory Audit report helps buyers to select and maintain a highly qualified vendor base in a reliable and efficient manner.

Factory Audit Features:

1. Check the general information of the factory, which includes the existence, license, structure, number of workers, area of workshop.
2. Evaluate the manufacturer's production system, including working condition, facilities, machines, technical capability and environmental control system.
3. Evaluate the quality system to ensure the presence of internal quality inspectors and their competence with correct methodology for quality control
4. Evaluate the management system, but sometimes also commercial investigation in depth at customers` demand.

SOCIAL AUDIT
The concept of Social Accountability is based on:
The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The Convention on the Rights of the Child
And various International Labour Organization (ILO), conventions

The purpose of the Social Audit is to verify the supplier’s compliance with health & safety standards and local labour laws in accordance with recognized standards (SA8000 / BSCI / WRAP / ICTI…). The main concerns covered by this audit include child labour, forced labour, health & safety, freedom of association & collective bargaining, non-discrimination, disciplinary practices, harassment or abuse, compensation & benefits, working hours, environmental practice and homework.

Generally check based on SA8000, to make sure whether the manufacturers comply with Local and International Labor Laws; and also requirements of our valued clients, including child labor, minimum wage, overtime, social benefits, safety and health, protection of the environment and etc.

LABORATORY TESTING (LT)
Laboratory Testing refers to the chemical or other testing inside laboratory to find out the materials used in the products.
Sometimes, on top of the Quality Inspection, Products need to get a formal Certification of conformity according to your local regulations. We can manage efficiently the testing of your production samples in liaison with local independent laboratories. For each type of Certificate needed ( CE, EMC, EN71, Rosh, etc.), we will select the Laboratory that qualifies best for both price and lead-time.

The objective of Laboratory Testing is to ensure that:
The products you ship meet your requirements.
The products you put on the market comply with local regulations and standards.

For example: toys must comply with the requirements of CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) and ASTM F963-08 (American Society Testing Material) for the US market.
