Once you have reached this stage you’re halfway to completion.
Intertek will conduct an Initial Factory Assessment (IFA) at each of your proposed manufacturing locations. These inspections ensure that your internal processes are well-defined and allow for that location to continue manufacturing compliant products – the way your original test samples were made.
In some cases, Production Line Testing may be required. Our certification specialists can help you determine if Production Line Testing is required, or you can refer to your product Listing Report.
An IFA checklist is available to help you in preparation of your inspection.
Inspections can take between 4-6 days, depending on schedule and how many facilities will need to be inspected. International inspections could take longer.
