Pre-shipment inspection is an essential part of managing product quality for most importers sourcing goods from Malaysia. Inspection is one of the only ways to "see" the quality of your product before it leaves the factory. AQF's team of Western-managed QC inspectors helps you visit the factory making your product and check and report back to you on the condition and status of your order. With experience in many product types, including consumer electronics, garments and textiles, we're ready to give you the clear and reliable reporting you need.
A factory audit is the last crucial step in the sourcing process for many importers. An audit helps you narrow your list of potential suppliers and feel confident that you're working with the right one. Whether you want to investigate a factory's quality management systems, conformance to Walmart's compliance standards or just want to see a general report of the situation at the factory, AQF auditors can help.

You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.

Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or

InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.
Vice President of Purchasing, MJS Packaging
One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.
Operations and Engineering Manager, Juku Gear
From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
