I am wondering how to specify quality control for a supplier. One sample is insufficient to judge the overall variations. Are you guys speccing the acceptable tolerances? Also is it too earlier to discuss the thickness of the packing materials to be sent to me in the sample?
Amazon is strongly committed to conducting its business in a lawful and ethical manner, including engaging with suppliers that are committed to the same principles. We require suppliers in our manufacturing supply chain to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct* (“Supplier Code”), which is detailed below. Amazon also expects our suppliers to hold their suppliers and subcontractors to the standards and practices covered by our Supplier Code. Our products must be manufactured in a manner that meets or exceeds the expectations of Amazon and our customers as reflected in our Supplier Code.
Suppliers must have designated representatives responsible for implementing management systems and programs that oversee compliance with applicable laws as well as this Supplier Code. Senior management must routinely review and assess the quality and efficiency of the management systems and programs. Amazon also expects our suppliers to hold their suppliers and subcontractors to the standards and practices covered by this Supplier Code.
In you contract, specify that the goods must be 99% similar of the sample (say when you order the sample that they keep track of it, and you’ll want exactly the same). Include that If you organise an inspection and it fails, they will have to redo the goods and pay for the next inspect. They’ll do their best to send you their best garbage. Hum, their best batch.
