Requirements on metal detector and its use
To ensure the safety of customers have requires all suppliers to possess a metal detector and to inspect all merchandise before the packing section. The aim of this operation is to eliminate the risk for a child to be hurt by any metal object (broken needles, wire-cutters, etc.) by wearing a garment. The above procedure requires the supplier to use only non-ferrous accessories (zips, snaps,etc.) sourced exclusively from suppliers. The list of homologated suppliers is indicated among the provided documents (zips and snaps nominated suppliers). The factory must follow a strict policy on the replacement of broken needles, by keeping a register, meticulously filled in and including all parts of the needle. No new needles can be given in replacement without the full reconstitution of the broken needle. If a piece is missing, the item currently being assembled must be passed through a metal detector, and the work station swept with a magnet. So, then the garments without plastic bag cover have to be tested separately (piece after piece) before packing into assorted lots. To avoid spoiling the garments, the conveyor carpet must be cleaned against dust and other stains.
