What specific work will CLI inspection company do?

Many importers require the CLI inspection department to perform the “follow up order” service to ensure product quality of mass production. Due to the limited budget for quality control of customers with special quality requirements, not all orders need to be checked on line. For some very important orders or product item and potential quality problems customers are very worried about, they will require CLI to carry out follow up order in order to find out what quality problems will exist at different stages of manufacturing.

For CLI inspections, follow up order includes the following points that covered different production stages.

  • Initial production inspection ( on-site inspection at initial production stage )
  • During production inspection ( on-site inspection at intermediate stage of production )
  • Production monitoring ( on-site inspection during the whole of production process )
  • Pre shipment inspection ( on-site inspection when all products are finished and at least 80 % packaged )

For order tracking , which order types do most customers usually require the CLI to follow up order?

  • The order is for their own VIP customers. ( follow up order helps customers keep excellent maintenance service)
  • The order is a new product. ( CLI follow up order will help identify potential quality problems at the initial stage of manufacturing. )
  • The order is a repeated order, but some quality problems are difficult to solve in previous orders. ( CLI follow up order will supervise the factory in resolving quality problems that continue to occur in previous shipments. )
  • ETD of the order is very strict and air transportation needs to be avoided. Follow up order will help to determine the shipment date. (Through CLI follow up order, customers clearly understand the situation of the factory and avoid passively listening to one-way information from the factory. )
  • The customer suspects that the factory or supplier will lie to him during the manufacturing process. ( CLI follow up order is to go to the production site and make on-site inspection to obtain all necessary evidences, check the arrival of incoming materials and how many workers are used in the order, etc. )

Compared with pre shipment inspection, follow up order includes initial production inspection and during production inspection.It is often required to check potential quality problems, difficulties in daily production to verify the real problems that lead to manufacturing and shipment delays.

In addition, the “order tracking” also requires office staff of CLI company to carry out some auxiliary cooperation work, such as confirmation of package,labeling,laboratory testing,etc. However, the most important part is the follow up order on site, which controls the quality risk and manufacturing risk of each production link by covering all stages of product production and manufacturing. We represent the customer in the factory to supervise and advance the production schedule, also ensure the product quality meets the requirements. In short, for importers, follow up order is a one-stop babysitting service provided by CLI inspection.
