Besides ensuring the quality of raw materials and production processes, TÜV SÜD’s inspection team can also monitor the transit and transportation of product on shipment to the client. We inspect containers for cleanliness and suitability besides checking consignments to ensure that they conform to the client’s specifications.
We can also perform an additional inspection on shipments to verify that they correspond to the quantity, size and colour on the packing list. This additional checkpoint can help avoid costly shipping mistakes and misrouted consignments.
Assist in appraising suppliers' internal quality assurance and help to ensure that suppliers are able to meet customers' requirements and reduce the risk of delays or failures.
Product check programme
The product check service is a comprehensive quality assurance and inspection programme for customers' suppliers. We performs supplier product qualification, audits, due diligence and performance monitoring. This enables alignment between suppliers and customers' requirements. We will customise a programme to suit customers' needs, leading to improved supplier performance, cost-effective management and supplier compliance to national or international quality and safety standards.
This involves the inspection of goods and commodities, for quality, quantity and condition at the suppliers' end, against the required standards. Our experts are highly skilled in risk mitigation, providing the balance between cost and protection.
