First Batch Inspection

The purpose of a First Batch Inspection, or Intial Quality Inspection, is to check production procedures and quality of the “first batch” of product. By correcting mistakes in the beginning stages of production, TCO can consult both our customer and their factory on how to proceed in the most efficient and effective manner to save the order.

TCO generally implements the following method for First Batch Inspection:

1. Check carefully materials and components for quality and consistency
2. Closely check batch compared to approved sample and customer specifications and requirements
3. Communicate and confirm the factory is clear about possible changes that need to be made in the production process
4. Monitor factory in-house QC policy and management

TCO takes a unique and refreshing approach to our inspection service. We are committed to offering our customers a comprehensive service, “A to Z” if you will, whereby you will never be stranded on a failed inspection. The main difference between us and the inspection-only companies out there is that we pride ourselves on the knowledge we have of ordering from Chinese factories, and we use that knowledge and experience on your behalf to source, secure, inspect and deliver your products to you.

That being said the inspection we do for your company is one part of the entire process. Our inspection team is trained to understand the complete process of the entire order, and therefore we support our customers before, during and after the order. Our service team will get involved in your order and ensure that order scheduling, tracking, communications with you and the factory – these are all key elements for a successful order. We are involved in your business and will work and fight on your behalf to ensure mistakes are reduced to as few as possible.
