Meet delivery and quality expectations from end users

AQF Bags and Accessories Quality Control Expertise

Intense competition, seasonality of markets, and continuous demands for innovation create a challenging environment for the manufacturing of bags in China and Asia. Quality issues and delivery failures impact directly on your supply chain efficiency, profit margins, and brand’s reputation. Retailers must implement effective quality systems to meet delivery and safety standards, along with the expectations of end users.  

AQF offers inspection services at every stage of the supply chain: from selecting new suppliers, through to in-process bag quality control, and final shipment. We examine all types of bag and fashion accessories including handbags, travel bags, backpacks, golf bags, purses, wallets, laptop bags, and more.

AQF verifies the quality, specifications, functions, safety, and compliance of your bags and fashion accessories based on US, EU, and numerous other standards including GB18041, REACH and CPSIA.

Bags and Accessories Quality Control Approach

AQF technical engineers work closely with your team to design a specific bag or accessory inspection checklist. AQF inspectors verify the quality of mass production based on your Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL), perform product function and safety tests, and assess compliance with your product’s specifications and authorized samples. Your products’ workmanship is carefully examined, and defects are classified into subcategories to highlight the key improvement areas for production.

Some tests on bags and accessories require a controlled environment to analyze their compliance with the standards and regulations of your destination country. AQF inspectors can forward samples to an accredited laboratory for testing.

AQF goes above and beyond the average quality inspection service by combining our advanced quality management technology and substantial experience in inspection of bags. We personalize your compliance program, monitor results, and apply corrective actions necessary to support your objectives and achieve lead-times.
