I subscribe to a number of blogs and one that I find very valuable is “Quality Inspection Tips“. This is a great reference site for me when we are dealing with issues on development of custom branded products for our clients, as it covers a range of subjects from quality control to factory relations and everything in between.
Even with more than 15 years of dealing with China, you can’t ever reduce your level of diligence as the political, economic and social climates are constantly in flux.
I thought that I would share with you a great Q & A that was just recently done dealing with Brand Protection in China. It forces us to realize that unless you have people there, on a regular basis, auditing, you can never be truly sure of what the process is.
I am not trying to be alarmist. The same goes for any market in the world where you are not currently located. Strong contracts, watchful eyes and understanding of resolution avenues at your disposal are best practices when setting up and implementing systems.
We have these processes in place and partners on the ground to ensure quality of service and product.
As always, as we move towards 2013, we are here to Get YOU Noticed!
