The Directors recognise the importance of quality control for the Qa's products. The Qa has a quality control and assurance team with 100-150 staff members. The Qa has established and implemented a quality management system covering each production process, from the sourcing of raw materials to finished goods.
In the raw material procurement stage, incoming raw materials are subject to detailed quality inspection on a random sampling basis before use in the production process to ensure that such materials comply with the Qa's quality standards. All raw materials which are found to be below the Qa's quality standards will be returned to the suppliers. During the production stage, inspections are routinely performed after each of the production stages such as cutting, sewing, stuffing and finishing. Upon completion of the production process, all the finished products are subject to further quality assurance test to ensure that they comply with the Qa's quality standards.All the Qa's products bear the relevant safety marks or comply with the relevant safety requirements. The Qa maintains in-house test laboratories in Shenzhen, which are primarily responsible for physical, mechanical, flammability and heavy metal (toxicity) tests in compliance with the safety requirements of the places to which the Qa's products are exported, such as "EN71 part 1, 2 and 3" (the European Standard on Safety of Toys) for Europe, "ASTM F963-96a" (the American Society for Testing and Materials) for the US, AS 1647 (Children's Toy Safety Requirement) for Australia and Japan Toy Safety Standard for Japan.
The Shenzhen laboratory meets the relevant requirements of the ISO 9001 series of standards , the general requirements for the competence of calibration and testing laboratories which has been the internationally recognised basic requirements for accreditation of laboratories. Testings are carried out prior to and after production of the toy product and any unusual deviations are promptly investigated and corrected.For test categories which cannot be conducted in the Qa's laboratories in Shenzhen, including tests such as azo dye, formaldehyde, total cadmium, vibration test and colourfastness to saliva, the Qa sends the sample to outside testing laboratories with accreditation from shenzhen Laboratory Accreditation Scheme for testing to ensure its testing quality.
It is the policy of the Directors to limit the Qa's exposure to product liability claims by carrying out a series of stringent quality control procedures. The Qa has not experienced any claim based on product liability or failure to comply with safety standards resulting in personal injury or death in respect of the products it sold.
