Our Furniture Inspection Services
Furniture is developed to meet quality, safety and durability requirements. To verify these attributes in furniture, its raw materials and manufacture throughout the supply chain, we offer a range of furniture inspection services from pre-production to final product and loading. These include:
- Pre-Production Check – Ensures raw materials (wood, metal, etc.) and components are checked before production so that the risk of non-compliance with product specification is reduced
- Initial Production Check (IPC) – A visual check on the quality of pre-series furniture at the beginning of production, against the clients’ specifications, technical drawings and type sample
- During Production Check (DUPRO) – A check on the dimensions of components, quality of materials and finished products during manufacturing
- Final Random Inspection (FRI) – A detailed visual inspection on randomly selected finished products. FRI covers the quality (product appearance, performance, workmanship), quantity, packaging, labelling and shipping mark
- Loading Supervision (LS) – Supervised loading of containers to ensure that the goods checked via a Final Random Inspection are those shipped to the intended recipient (In addition, at the client’s request, containers can be secured with SGS seals after loading, to reduce the risk of product substitution)
An effective inspection programme means products are checked for specifications and customer specific requirements. Our furniture inspections:
- Enable corrective actions for any non-conformities to be implemented before completion of the whole assignment
- Reduce the risk of product failure
- Verify quality (materials, manufacturing, finish)
- Reduce after sale service due to production deviation
