Quality Control for Home Appliances

Improve the quality of your household appliances to meet your high standards with HQTS’ comprehensive quality control solutions tailored to the home appliances industry.

Kitchen and home appliances are subject to strict restrictions, such as RoHS, CE Marking, EMC Directive, CCC, and WEE, as the products are intended for use by end-consumers. Due to the nature of the industry, with production often taking place in various factories, quality control can be challenging.

To ensure compliance with specifications, safety, and regulatory requirements, a well-defined quality control strategy is crucial for sourcing and manufacturing home appliances.
