Quality Control

CLASSICTEX is one of the rear companies in Bangladesh who owns a quality plan, compliant to international quality code/standards. We believe in maintaining systems and control measures from yarn to finished products stage in accordance to the MIL-STD-105E along with AATC, ASTM and ISO codes and standards to deliver flawless garments. Our quality assurance personnel stationed at all the manufacturing sites ensure that all production units are geared to run on your quality requirements, thereby eliminating the last minute rejection factor giving you value for your money.

The level of inspections are used for the 3 pre-shipment inspections are as follows:

  1. Initial Production Check (IPC) –Single Sampling Plan General Level I
  2. During Production Check (DUPRO)–Single Sampling Plan General Level I
  3. Final Random Inspection (FRI) – Single Sampling Plan General Level II

If a tighter inspection plan is needed by clients for special cases where stricter controls are required on the product, level III shall be applied.  Level III generally means that a larger sample size will be check, and of which a smaller proportion is allowed to be defective.

Level S3 is a special level used in conjunction with Levels I, II and III.  Level S3 is used for field tests and performance measurements where it would not be practical to perform such tests on larger sample sizes

Initial production check (IPC)

Inspection at the early stage of production when the first match of articles has been produced in order to ascertain conformity to basic product specifications.

Deviations are notified for correction. If deviations are difficult to describe in writing and their acceptance/ rejection depend on subjective evaluation representative samples (s) should be sent urgently to the clients for their decision.

If laboratory tests are required, tests samples are drawn as early as possible provided they fairly are said to representative of the production batch preceding or following sample drawing. Quality inspections for this stage:

  1. Lab testing for quality and performance
  2. Fabrics and findings
  3. Design prototypes
  4. Product assemblies and components
  5. Conformance to specifications
  6. Evaluations of customer requests

IPC and DUPRO are most important: basic deviations from reference – samples and/or specifications must be detected at this stage. Production delays must also be reported.

During production check (DUPRO):

Mid–inspection to ascertain that initial discrepancies have been rectified and to check the average quality standard of the available production. At this stage finished products shall be checked against buyer’s specification and prototype sample. Deviations shall be identified and brought out for correction. Inspection during production is carried out to check and verify that the initial discrepancies have been rectified and to ensure the average quality standards of production runs. At this stage of inspection involves:

  1. To determine whether products have been made according to specifications / if meet standards / if products are acceptable.
  2. 100% inspection of finished goods
  3. Statistical quality control
  4. Proportion and type of defects in the total production lot.
  5. CLASSICTEX uses acceptance sampling based on sampling plans (single, double, and multiple).
  6. Monitoring the garment assembly process.
  7. Finished garment evaluation
  8. Mill flaw and general repair. Make a separate log for sampling and identify inefficient operators. Verbal, written and then termination of operators shall be followed in failing to prove their quality of workmanships.

Final random inspection (FRI):

At his stage, random inspection is carried out when the total 90% consignment is packed and ready for shipment. Inspection is performed according to the international inspection standards. The detailed physical inspection of the sample selected at random is based on specifications of the buyers and it covers the criteria such as design/style, accessories, measurements, packing etc. The quality checks for FRI are as follow:

  1. Quality assurance while goods are stored at plants, and distribution centers.
  2. Quality audits to determine the defect level of the output.
  3. Auditing, monitoring, and reporting quality of finished goods, packing, and shipping in distribution centers.
  4. Analysis of returned merchandise by customers.

Status reporting during IPC, DUPRO, FRI

As part of the above stages (IPC/ DUPRO/ FRI) the execution of the order according to the delivery schedule will be monitored and the client will be advised problems through formal reporting.

Based on the contractual delivery date the inspections are be scheduled provisionally upon reception of the inspection order. Reporting of delays anticipated is an integral part of our full service and is important to client.

*Disclaimer: Client must specify inspection requirements, Third Party Inspection Company, AQL and code/standard before placing orders in order to maintain expected quality level and refund.
