Time to Move Testing Upstream By BVCPS India Softlines

Supply chain solution improves quality & chemical safety whilst reducing total cost of quality

Business Challenge

In today’s sophisticated consumer market, consumers are getting concerned as to the product quality and safety. Not only consumers but the regulations for consumer products safety in many countries have become more stringent than ever. Consumer product manufacturers need to validate the quality of component parts used in the making of a complete product, and hence that the end products comply with international regulations meet consumers’ expectations. For manufacturers and suppliers of trim component parts, their components have to be compliant and high quality in order to remain as part of the supply chain.


The Solution

Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services India, the supply chain quality management solutions leader, has launched its Trim Manufacturing Quality Program (TMQP) to address these very issues. Component parts of a product are those parts which are assembled with the product to make it complete & ready to use. These can be tested separately from the product, for eg – buttons, snaps, zippers also includes wet paints, spray sampling, multi sampling used.  By moving trim testing further upstream, failures can be corrected before final production, reducing the risk of recalls / non-compliance and saving time and cost. This initiative involves educating the trim suppliers and vendors to build awareness of CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) regulations, CPSC testing and certification rules.

Key Benefits:
•    Cheaper - Saves cost by eliminating multiple tests at garment stage

•    Better – Better control of the incoming components/raw material to ensure no trims used that are not    

     approved prior.

•    Faster – Less time required at garment stage, products can be moved quicker through labs. Keeps you at

     same pace with today’s world of ‘Fast Fashion’

•    Safer – Consumer protection/brand integrity by moving testing up front & indicating failures at early

      stage.

•    Smarter – BV One Source IT Platform can track trims associated with a garment, data mining capabilities
