Customers’ expectations are high in the textile and garment industry. Any quality issue, price discrepancy, or late delivery directly affects your business finances and reputation. Retailers involved in textile and garment manufacturing in China & Asia must optimize the entire supply chain to stay competitive, meet delivery deadlines, and build an environmentally and socially responsible business.
AQF offers inspection services in China and Asia for all kinds of garments and home textiles such as shirts, jeans, jackets, underwear, snow suits, sleepwear, workwear, gloves, knit hats, socks, belts, scarves, aprons, and blankets.
We verify your textile and garment quality, specifications, functions, safety, and compliance with relevant applicable standards: US, EU, and numerous other standards including ISO, AATC, EDANA, ASTM, based on AQF garment inspection checklist (AQF#CK-SL-123).
Each inspection is customized by combining our standard AQF garments inspection checklists with your unique product specifications. We verify the quality of mass production based on your Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL), identifying and classifying defects to offer an overview of your product’s quality. We also perform on-site tests and assess compliance to your product’s specification and approval sample. Checks include sizing, measurements, labeling, packaging, and packing.
AQF can add even more value to your quality control processes. Based on our textile and garment expertise, we set up and execute a customized inspection procedure, monitor the results, and help you implement the necessary corrective actions to reach your quality objectives and lead-times
Main tests performed during an inspection of Textiles and Garments
Some textiles and garments tests require a controlled environment to certify their compliance with the applicable standards and regulations. AQF inspectors select products from the factory and send them to an accredited laboratory to have these tests performed.

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.
We are satisfied with AQF coverage area and online reservation system which is easy and intuitive. The communication with AQF is going well, most information is transmitted pretty quickly and on time. We were very pleased with the final reports and the results. Inspectors show lots of details and describe the errors carefully.
What AQF has done exceeds our expectations. They try and work hard to provide good services and meet our expectations for all our Pre-shipment Inspections. Booking online gives us convenience and expertise, helping all of us to manage QC easily. We are looking forward to more professionalism that AQF brings in future!
