Quality Audit Review
Acument is required by worldwide trademark laws to provide for a means of controlling the quality of our trademarked products made by licensees. The way we do this is by auditing samples of your Acupoint® products. Sample fasteners and tooling are inspected to ensure they meet the specifications for quality and workmanship as called out in our standards. A majority of the licensees receive a 100% audit. Those that don’t receive a 100% audit are usually due to problems we regularly see in the audit samples.
If Acument rejects any audit samples, we will provide that licensee with possible solutions to the problem and many times ask for corrected samples. Our goal is to have all licensees achieve a 100% acceptable audit.
