Quality, specifications, functions, safety, and compliance

AQF Electronics Quality Control Expertise

The electronics industry is experiencing rapid technological change. The risk of faulty products which can harm consumers and impact on an organization’s success is high. Importers and retailers of electronic products manufactured in China & Asia must closely monitor the supply chain to ensure physical, functional, and safety features of finished goods are acceptable, and meet the end user's high expectations.

In addition to our regular consumer electronics, lighting, and home appliance surveillance programs, AQF offers product-specific inspection services in China & Asia for many other kinds of electronics and electrical appliances such as: electronic tools, exercise and fitness equipment, consumer electronics accessories.

AQF verifies your electronics’ quality, specifications, functions, safety, and compliance with relevant standards applicable to your product’s destination. These include CE, UL, FCC, CPSIA, ISED, and RCM.

Electronics Quality Control Approach


AQF technical engineers work with your team to customize our standard electronic inspection checklists by incorporating the key risks and unique specifications of your product.

AQF inspectors verify the quality of mass production based on your Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL), provide an overview of the finished goods’ quality, and highlight areas for improvement. In addition, we perform product function and safety tests, and assess compliance with your product’s specifications and reference samples. 

Some tests on electronics require a controlled environment to ensure the relevant safety standards and regulatory requirements are met. AQF inspectors select a specific number of products from each lot and forward them to an accredited laboratory for testing.

AQF can provide even greater value to your organization. We have the knowledge and resources to assist you to implement a customized quality assurance program. We help you control key quality risks, monitor and analyze results, advise on corrective actions necessary for improvement, and optimize the use of limited resources.

We couldn’t have gotten this far without AQF

I appreciated AQF services before, but now I’ve come to realize they are a critical partner in our dealings with Chinese companies. We’ll never work with a company again unless AQF has first inspected to ensure we are contracting with a professional, fully operational and legally structured factory. We truly appreciate AQF team time, hard work and help to achieve resolution
