Frequently Asking Questions

Nowadays, almost all Turkey manufacturers have their own quality control teams, why do you still need independent (third-party) inspection service?
No mother says her own child looks bad. A large amount of manufacturers’ trend is hiding something, especially while quality control means extra cost or scrapping to them. But if the problems hidden cannot be detected before shipment, the biggest loss will be transferred to the buyer.
Most of the manufacturers’ in-house quality control teams are not so obliged or qualified to perform professional inspections as third-party inspection companies do. A professional inspection company performs inspections more rationally, more precisely, and more considerately.
