Fabric Quality Control Approach
Quality control of fabric requires considerable hands-on expertise and a keen focus on detail. AQF technical engineers use the industry standard four-point grading method, along with input on your main concerns and specific requirements for each product, to build a comprehensive fabric inspection checklist. AQF inspectors then conduct a series of measurements and on-site checks to verify the quality of mass production based on your Acceptable Quality Limits, international regulations, and safety standards.
Some tests on fabrics require a controlled environment to analyze their compliance with the standards and regulations of your destination country. Our AQF inspectors select products from each batch and forward them to an accredited laboratory for processing.

Using our expertise in fabric inspection and leading edge, online quality management software, we support you to set up, manage, monitor and optimize a surveillance program, to achieve your quality objectives and lead-times.
