For gloves inspection, how to determine the right sample size and acceptance number?
A key quality measurement for disposable latex gloves is AQL, or Acceptable Quality Level. AQL will help you monitor and avoid batches of unsatisfactory products. So how is AQL applied in practice? According to AQL, there are three kinds of defects, critical defects, major defects and minor defects. Importers usually apply AQL of 0.0 for critical defects, AQL of 2.5 for major and AQL of 4.0 for minor defects. For example, to meet an AQL of 2.5, from 200 sample gloves randomly picked from the bulk 10,000 production, no more than 10 gloves can fail the quality inspection. For more details, please refer to: How to read AQL table?
