The ongoing coronavirus crisis continues to affect lives around the world. While HQTS hopes for positive outcomes for all those affected, the reality is that this crisis is likely to continue for months to come. For this reason, we are offering enhanced emergency services to help clients back on track.
HQTS has been communicating with clients and supply chain partners over the past several weeks to assess their needs during this challenging time. Our people are currently working on the ground throughout China and abroad to give clients an accurate picture of what is happening while ensuring their quality needs.
Our new emergency services include:
Our Emergency Status Audit will determine your supplier’s current production capabilities, so that you know exactly what is happening in their facilities. The emergency status audit specifically checks for:
- The condition of equipment and materials
- The availability and capability of all personnel including production line workers, process/ quality control engineers and management
- The implementation of health and safety measures such as facial masks, on-site temperature checks, and canteen/ general sanitation
Our During Production Inspection (DPI) and Pre-Shipping Inspection (PSI) have been improved to address the needs of our clients during the coronavirus outbreak at no additional charge. Due to ongoing production and supply chain disruptions, we strongly recommend clients use the DPI inspection together with the PSI to get a better understanding of their suppliers’ capabilities at this time.
In addition to our industry-leading services, the DPI Plus/ PSI Plus will now check that your supplier is doing everything possible to minimize risks associated with the current crisis. These include:
- Worker return rate
- Availability of materials and components
- Emergency production planning
- Local government policy
- Health and safety measures such as facial masks, sanitation, and more
HQTS has redesigned its Production Monitoring (PM) service to meet the needs of our clients. We now offer a thorough three-stage on-site process that includes initial inspection, process assessment, and corrective actions to ensure clients’ standards are met consistently throughout the production process.
To help clients cope with the ongoing coronavirus crisis, we also check for the the following at no additional charge:
- Raw material and component availability/ alternate planning
- Production Status
- Emergency quality Control Capability
