Intertek’s global reach and local presence enable us to assist retailers, brands and buyers conduct independent, third-party inspections of their consumer goods, including clothing or toys, at their manufacturing source through our extensive network of laboratories and offices in more than 100 countries.
In today’s truly global economy, performing textile and apparel inspection, juvenile products inspection, food inspection or appliance and electronics inspection is essential as these items most likely endured a long journey from their point of origin to their final destination. Retailers and distributors are often far removed from where their products are produced, making it both important and challenging to ensure your interests are being well protected and your products are of the highest quality possible. Despite advances in remote communication, there is still no substitute for supervising the manufacturing process at the local level. By employing a trusted, independent inspection and testing entity to monitor the manufacturing process, you are able to identify and control quality issues at the source.
