As one of Asia’s manufacturing powerhouses, India is a key sourcing partner for brands and retailers worldwide. Whether you are extending your sourcing geography to India for the first time or have been working with local suppliers for a while, an effective quality control program must be at the center of your supply chain strategy. With a strong quality control presence in India’s major production hubs, QIMA is perfectly positioned to help you secure your supply chain and ensure that your products are manufactured to the quality standards of your brand and your destination market.
As experts in product inspections in India, you can trust us to help you keep production on track and ensure quality before your products leave the factory. Keeping product quality consistent across multiple factories and sourcing markets is an ever-present challenge of today’s international supply chains. QIMA’s on-site product inspections catch quality defects before the products leave your Indian supplier’s factory, preventing subpar products from entering your supply chain and ensuring that you only pay for the shipments that meet your specifications.
Quality inspectors specialized in your product category can be on-site within 48 hours of your booking. We offer several product inspection services to help you maintain quality throughout the manufacturing process:
Our supplier audits help you ensure your suppliers meet your criteria for quality management, ethical conduct, and environmental protection. With consumers and governments alike demanding that global brands put greater scrutiny on their supply chains, the importance of ethical and sustainable sourcing has never been higher. As with most low-cost sourcing destinations, India’s manufacturing sector still struggles with a number of CSR issues, including human rights, factory safety, and pollution.
A supplier audit is a crucial component of getting visibility into the true state of things in your supply chain and taking actionable steps towards lasting improvement. QIMA supplier audits in India are not a mere formality; we investigate the real situation at your supplier’s factories, develop Corrective Action Plans (CAP), and provide the training necessary for you and your supplier to make improvements together.
Depending on which aspect of your supplier’s business you want to focus on, QIMA offers the following types of supplier audits in India:
All of our supplier audits in India can be conducted to internationally recognized standards, our own best-in-class protocol, or the requirements of your in-house CSR program.
