Ensuring socially responsible factory conditions, supply chain security or understanding how they operate.
Our owner participated in the development of the consumer safety division of SGS back in 1985 when the McDonald's Happy Meals drove the voluntary industry standards into mandatory U.S. government safety requirements (CPSIA) and global regulations.
Since 1993 we have remained as one of the "pioneers" in the quality-assurance and consumer-compliance industry in China, as well as the Far and Middle East. Thanks to our commitment to integrity in all our dealings, adjusting to new regulations and service technologies, we've become one of the most well-respected firms in our industry.
Protecting our clients' interests and minimizing their risks is our way of ensuring consumer protection from unsafe products. We're your watchdog, always on the job.
We work on a "bespoke" basis for each client, we can design a customized plan for you to cover your quality-control and regulatory compliance needs. AATCC, ASTM, AUS/NZ, CALPROP, CPSC, EN,GB, ISO, we cover these and many more.
We've worked with thousands of companies since 1993, and we know this industry better than anyone. Very few others offer honesty, speed and reliability at such an affordable rate. The level of service we're committed to giving you is unparalleled and yet, our fees are far lower than what the rest of the market might charge.
We provide fast turnarounds; our reports are factual, timely, and presented in exactly the way you need them in order to make the right decision on what to do with your product next. From first sample to final inspection let us help you take control of your supply chain.
Over the years one of the great strengths was QA International's vision to grow in mainland China. As consumer product manufacturing continued to shift to China, so did QAI. In 2003, QAI began the setup of our own laboratory in Hangzhou, Zhejiang China with the ideal partnership with Helmsman Quality and Technology Service, HQTS, of Fuzhou, Fujian China. More recently our lab has expanded with 2 new locations Dongguan and ZhuZhou. Together, QAI & HQTS boasts one of the largest and oldest ISO 17025 laboratories in China, HQTS-QA International Services – HQTS-QAI. Combining our lab with a network of inspectors all throughout China, QAI and HQTS make up one of the most comprehensive quality providers in all of China!
Making sure your dollar goes the furthest is difficult when the market is oversaturated with small Chinese labs who cannot give you the compliance updates you are looking for. The big labs are too busy to handle the smaller clientele and you become just another cog in the wheel.
QAI has worked for over 20 years to find that perfect balance of technical expertise and cost savings that most importers are looking for. We have a technical team that is working around the clock to keep our compliance and technical information up-to-date for you. Our customer service representatives work with you to make sure there are no duplicate tests or unnecessary tests that raise your compliance testing fees.
Value is not the big global 3rd parties attempting to sell every available service to you, nor is it the smaller Chinese laboratories that offer the cheapest quotes.
Real value means choosing a quality partner that possesses experience, knowledge, as well as an integrated quality management approach that is reasonable, affordable, and proven effective by experienced importers in the real world. Real value is choosing a partner you can trust.
