Quality control in Chinese factories

Many companies that source products in China focus primarily on finding a reliable manufacturing partner and organizing logistics for delivery. However, one extremely important task that is often overlooked is quality control. If you are serious about utilizing China’s manufacturing capabilities for your business, you cannot afford to ignore quality control.

Do not make the common mistake of ignoring quality control when working with Chinese factories

Quality control processes can vary depending on the specific product being sourced and the industry you are in. Nevertheless, the EterChina team has compiled a list of very important reasons why it is necessary to dedicate a lot of time and effort to implementing quality control measures.


Adhering to strict quality control standards for your products starts with the raw materials. If your supplier uses subpar materials or cuts corners in other aspects (such as using lower-grade steel than requested), you will end up with a low-quality, defective product. This is true even if your assembly shop supplier is excellent.

Example: Vape cartridge

Consider a simple vape cartridge as an example of how raw materials impact quality control. These products rely on the best available materials, such as high-quality ceramic for heating elements and high-grade cotton for wicks. Regardless of how effectively the final vape cartridge is assembled, if the quality of any of these materials is low, the vapor taste will be affected.

You must also ensure that basic components (such as the metal, plastic, and glass from which the vape liquid reservoir will be made) are sterile. This will prevent leaks in cartridges and prevent the release of harmful toxins from atomizer components into the vapor. Details like the mouthpiece should be made of food-grade plastic (which negligent suppliers often overlook, leading to the production of defective and potentially harmful products).

All of these factors should be considered before considering quality control stages related to assembly. If the raw materials are of unsatisfactory quality, your entire product is doomed to fail.

Example: Glass jars

When it comes to manufacturing a complex product (such as a vape cartridge), it is easy to understand that ignoring quality control stages will lead to problems. However, even simple products can suffer greatly if quality control measures are not followed. Glass jars are a perfect example of what seems like a simple product that can greatly suffer from a lack of quality control.

We help various customers source glass jars from China.

The thickness of these jars is extremely important. Fragile, lightweight jars filled with products intended for human consumption are a direct path to disaster. Low-quality suppliers may try to sell jars with particularly thin glass to save on materials. This can lead to serious problems. Firstly, many jars are likely to not withstand transportation (especially if you are using sea freight). For those that do withstand it, glass breakage will lead to product spoilage and financial losses. Moreover, this can negatively impact your business’s reputation — all because you ignored quality control.
