AQF Homeware Quality Control Expertise
Substandard homeware products present a real danger to the health of consumers because they come into physical contact with our food, beverages, and body. Safety risks, seasonality of product sales, and high customer expectations pose significant challenges for those involved in homeware manufacturing in China and Asia. It is critical to set up an effective quality control program to ensure on-time delivery of finished goods which meet all relevant quality and safety standards.
AQF offers homeware furnishings inspection for all kinds of items used in the home. Our expertise extends to a wide range of product categories including home décor (AQF#CK-HL-106), kitchenware (AQF#CK-HL-111), cookware (AQF#CK-HL-111), tableware and glassware (AQF#CK-HL-99) for indoor or outdoor use, and a wide variety of materials such as wood, plastic, stainless steel, ceramics, paper, boards, and glass.
AQF verifies the mechanical, physical, and chemical properties of your homeware for compliance with relevant standards applicable to your product’s destination. These include US, EU and numerous other standards, including ASTM, ISTA, California Proposition 65, EN, and EEC.
Homeware Quality Control Approach
Quality control of homeware requires considerable hands-on expertise and a keen focus on detail. AQF technical engineers customize our standard homeware inspection checklists to include your main concerns and specific requirements for each product. AQF inspectors then conduct a series of on-site checks to verify the quality of mass production based on your Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL), international regulations, safety standards, and our extensive industry know-how.
Some tests on homewares require a controlled environment to certify their compliance with related standards and regulations. AQF inspectors select products from each lot and forward them to an accredited laboratory for testing.
AQF goes further than the average quality inspection service in China & Asia. Using our expertise in homeware inspection and our leading edge online technology, we help implement corrective actions necessary to achieve quality objectives and lead-times. We work with you and your suppliers to set up, manage, and monitor a customized surveillance program.
