We provide a complete program to follow through the entire process – approval samples, product inspection during manufacturing, statistical QA audits prior to shipping, and product performance feedback.

Vendor StandardsVendor Standards

In addition to sales or manufacturing contracts that describe a particular business agreement, a more complete explanation of the standards required for the vendor to meet is a vital part of any sourcing relationship. Issues such as Quality Assurance, Product Testing, Use of Trademarks, Chargebacks for Non-Compliance, and Standards for the Environment and Child Labor need to be clearly defined in writing. We can assist in the preparation of a Vendor Standards document for your business.
