As we are exclusively focused on helping importers, our approach is to only focus on company information that’s directly relevant when sourcing suppliers in China.

Business License

The supplier’s business license can help us understand whether the supplier is a minor trading company or an established manufacturer. We look primarily at the business scope and registered capital.

Bank Account Details

Payment fraud is a constant risk when importing products. As such, we compare the supplier’s bank account details to their company name and registered address to assess the risk.

Product Test Reports

Product compliance is essential when importing products to the United States, Europe, and Australia. Therefore, we request, analyze, and verify existing test reports to assess their compliance track record.

ISO Certification

ISO 9001 certification hints that the supplier has some sort of quality management system in place. It’s also relevant when assessing if the supplier is a manufacturer or trading company.

BSCI and Sedex

BSCI and Sedex audit reports indicate that the supplier holds up to higher social compliance standards than most other suppliers.

      I am trying to bring in some products from China. A copy of an FDA certificate was sent to me. I have no idea if this is real or fake. How can I find out if the product I want to import is real and meets standards in order to import into the US.
