How does Testcoo perform carton and defect samples stamping?

1. Identified the selected cartons, jotted down the carton no# with significant stamp by Testcoo Inspection Sampling stamp, if allowed by the factory. Check those stamps whenever inspector had left the cartons or samples unattended.

2. In case of carton no# not yet assigned on the export carton before inspection than Testcoo inspector would carefully check the PO, Art./Style No# or some identification No# or description marked on carton must be correct. Moreover, inspectors would pay extra care to select the carton and samples more randomly to protect our interest.

4. Ensure that the selected samples will not be changed or taken away by the factory worker (e.g. unpack the goods)

5. Inspectors ascot factory workers to transit those selected cartons from the selecting area/warehouse to inspection site. If the inspection situation not allows inspector to ascot such transiting process than inspectors need to re-check the carton no# and significant stamp on cartons to well identify the goods were selected by us.

6. During inspection, defects are identified by arrow sticker/clip or some specific indicator and segregated from the good samples.
