Having a product that extends beyond its shelf life is vital for manufacturers and retailers. This is important because a product recall can ultimately destroy the brand of an image and the company that sold it. This is why product safety testing on a regular basis is vital to the success of a company. There are several measures that an electrical company should take to ensure that their product is safe in order to protect their image.
Select the Appropriate Vendor
Selecting the appropriate vendor so that a long term buyer/vendor relationship can be established is very important. When a vendor understands that the relationship with the buyer can ultimately come to an end if the product they make and sell is not safe, they are typically that much more likely to ensure the safety of the product.
Obtain Third-Party Certification
Obtaining third-party certification is also vital. A third-party certification will be able to find major errors in a product that design houses may not be able to find. This certification also typically includes factory surveillance that will find any discrepancies within a product.
Comply With Source Specifications
Reviewing production samples to see if they go against a specific performance specification is also very important to ensure the safety of a product. Knowing and understanding the original certification samples is a valuable measure that will allow the company and a third party to detect any variations that have been made.
Ensure Product Safety
Ensuring the safety of a product is vital to the success of any business. Products are tested against safety standards such as radiation and electric shock. By following the above steps and certification, the manufacturing company can be ensured that the quality of their products are up to par with what is expected of them and can endure a long life beyond their extended shelf life.
