Imagine : An overseas buyer wants to place an order for 10,000 radio sets with a company based in Hong Kong. However, the buyer does not have the resources to visit the company’s factory in China or other Asian countries to verify that the factory is capable of filling the order with the required cost and quality.
For many companies in such situation, STC has a ready-made solution — the services of Hong Kong Inspection Company (HKIC). Through HKIC, overseas customers can place an order without worrying that we will be there to provide a full range of auditing and inspection services for a wide variety of consumer products.
Typically, HKIC will conduct initial factory inspection, inline production checks, and final random inspection when the goods are produced. Through the independent third-party reports we offer, we have helped many overseas companies to set up supply chains in China, and the inspected Chinese companies can manage their quality management system better.
Inspection services cover apparel, toys, bags, electrical and electronic products, watches and clocks, footwear, cosmetic and sundry products. We also provide factory audit services, such as Code of Conduct (COC), British Retail Consortium (BRC), Quality Check and Social Audits.
Moreover, we cooperate with internationally recognized inspection bodies in Asia, Europe and the USA, which enable us to satisfy any inspection demand with high efficiency and competitive pricing. Through our agreements with international certification bodies, we can test locally-made products in Hong Kong, mainland China or Germany, explain the technical requirements, and prepare reports for certification in overseas markets — a far more efficient and convenient solution for local manufacturers.
Conversely，overseas manufacturers who wish to sell in Hong Kong or mainland markets can also come to us for advice on meeting local certification requirements.
We will continue to focus on Hong Kong and China Market, at the same time we are also looking to expand our customer base to serve customers in South America, Eastern Europe and Australia. Factory audits and on-site inspection services will also be extended to countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, Indonesia and South Korea.
As another new initiative for the coming year, we plan to expand our sampling and auditing services.
