Novetec Group Limited

Supplier Quality Audit and Inspection

In line with our QC and QA teams of our own manufacturing, Novetec conducts vendor surveys and vendor audits to officially identify, to review and to analyze potential material suppliers.



Our research encompasses not only those manufacturers who are currently producing similar product or products within the same category, but also manufacturers whose potential capabilities (based on their equipment and background, etc.) indicate an ability to meet your requirements.

Our Vendor Survey/Audit includes intensive review of manufacturer's background, current production capability, capacity, manufacturing facilities, equipment from production and QC, export experiences, general manufacturing lead time, financial strength and management personnel as well. All these are crucial factors that lead to a successful vendor certification program.






Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) or called Final Random Inspection (FRI) will take place when at least 85% of products have been completed that are ready for inspection. In most cases, this will be conducted in-house at plant where the products are manufactured. Special cases will be conducted at forwarder's premises or at pier.

It aims at ensuring products meet quality standards, technical specifications and contractual requirements. This can offer you independent and professional verification on quality, quantity, marking, labeling, packaging and loading of shipments; you will be comfortable on overall product quality prior to delivering of products.
