Zero defects quality management program


The Automotive industry has an enormous responsibility to guarantee vehicle safety and satisfaction for the billions of consumers who travel by road every day. Automotive parts are expected to have zero defects, without exception. Substandard products can endanger lives and damage a brand’s reputation, profit margins, and ability to meet contractual obligations. Manufacturers, importers, and retailers involved in automotive parts manufacturing in China must implement a rigorous quality management program.

AQF offers product-specific automotive parts inspection services in China. These services can be implemented at each step of the product’s development. Our expertise extends to the full range of automotive components including belts, brakes, filters, replacement lights, catalytic converters, pipes, and exhaust manifolds. 

AQF verifies a supplier’s ability to meet the highest automotive standards ISO TS 16949 or VDA 6.3. AQF technical inspectors monitor the whole manufacturing process from design validation to mass production via the ramp up phase, ensuring only those goods which conform to the rigorous standards are shipped.



Quality control of automotive parts requires specialized engineering knowledge, considerable hands-on experience, and a keen focus on detail. AQF technical engineers take into account your main concerns and unique product specifications, to build a customized Automotive parts inspection checklist. AQF inspectors then use highly accurate instruments to conduct a series of measurements and on-site checks. This data verifies the quality of mass production based on your criteria and tolerances, international regulations, safety standards, and our extensive industry know-how. 

Some tests on automotive parts require a controlled environment to analyze their compliance with the standards and regulations of your destination country. AQF inspectors collect products in-line and forward them to an accredited laboratory for testing.

AQF's extensive expertise in automotive parts quality control and leading edge quality management software can provide even greater value to your organization. We assist you and your suppliers to set up and manage a customized surveillance program and optimize the use of limited resources. We help you control key quality risks, monitor and analyze results, advise on corrective actions necessary to achieve your objectives, and build a culture of continuous improvement across your entire supply chain.
