Audits for a strong supply chain.

Components, methods, installations, processes or systems: the textile supply chain is long, complicated and prone to error. With neutral, on-site inspection, you identify production errors early and avoid consequent costs.

Hohenstein offers a variety of inspection modules for all production phases that help eliminate errors and ensure consistently high material and product quality or compliance with occupational safety and environmental protection laws. We also certify facilities who want market differentiation through certification - STeP by OEKO-TEX® for environmentally friendly and socially responsible textile and leather production.

Pre-production check

Sampling materials and accessories prior to start of production for legal compliance, harmful substances and quality parameters.

During-production check

On-site inspection at the ~20% stage of production for verification of sample conformity, processing according to DIN ISO 2859-1, dimensional accuracy, weight and labeling. Testing samples at Hohenstein laboratories for chemical and quality parameters.

Final random check

On-site inspection toward the end of production to verify production quantities, sample conformity, processing according to DIN ISO 2859-1, dimensional accuracy, weight, packaging, labeling, EAN codes and sorting of shipping boxes.
