Why Social compliance services in Asia is very important?

Social compliance audits are important for international brands manufacturing in Asia because a lot of subcontractors resort to cost-cutting measures, such as a child or forced labor. If social compliance audits are not conducted, manufacturers may be operating in a socially irresponsible manner and may be in violation of labor laws and international standards.

For instance, UNIQLO, a Japanese clothing retailer, has come under fire for allegedly abusing Chinese garment workers. According to reports, UNIQLO’s subcontractors in China have been forcing workers to work excessive hours and violating labor laws, which resulted in hampering the reputation of this global brand.

Regularly conducting social compliance audits is essential to ensuring that your brand is operating socially responsibly and in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations. By outsourcing production to Asian countries, you run the risk of violating labor laws and international standards if proper audits are not conducted.

Fabric Quality Control Approach

Tetra Inspection uses a 4-point system testing protocol, an inspection technique that is widely recognized for fabric.

The 4-Point System assigns 1, 2, 3, and 4 penalty points according to the size, quality, and significance of the defect. No more than 4 penalty points are assigned for any single flaw. A defect can be measured in either length or width.

The main purpose for inspecting fabric is the detection of quality issues and non-conformities at an early stage of the production process. Therefore, it will help the fabric buyers to not waste time, and money later on, in either correcting the defect or writing off defective goods.


Fabric quality control requires specific knowledge and expertise, our textile inspectors join a 6-months training program to master all the fabric testings, potential defects, and manufacturing processes.
