Trim Manufacturing Quality Program
Supply chain solution improves quality & chemical safety whilst
reducing total cost of quality
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.
What is Trim Component Quality Manufacturing Program?
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.
What are the key benefits?
