INSPECTION METHOD - FOUR-POINT SYSTEM

DQC adopts Four-Point System as a standardized methods for fabric Visually Inspecting and Grading, unless others method (such as Ten-Point System) required.


Four-Point System, as a standard under ASTM D5430, has received widest acceptance in fabric inspection due to its practical, impartial, and worldwide recognized. In four-point system‍, defect in both warp or fill direction is assigned points under the following criteria:

1 point     –   Defects              ≤ 3″

2 points   –   Defects              > 3″   ≤ 6″

3 points   –   Defects              > 6″   ≤ 9″

4 points   –   Defects              > 9″

Any defect of a continuous nature shall be assigned four points for each yard in which it occurs. Severe defects are assigned the maximum four points for each yard in which they occur. Example: regardless of size, hole would be penalized four points.

FAQ:


  • HOW MANY DAYS IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PLACETHE BOOKING ?

    Inspection booking should be at least 2 days before you desired inspection date. The earlier you place the booking, the better inspector(s) could be appointed for your shipment(s).

    Inspection booking less than 2 days can also be arranged as exception case instead of regular practice, but too late booking is often difficult to be scheduled due to all our inspectors occupied.

  • CAN SUPPLIERS / FACTORIES BOOK FORBUYERS ?

    Yes, both you and your suppliers/factories are same welcome to book any inspection.

    Actually, many of our customers book inspections by their suppliers/factories because the suppliers/factories know more accurate date for inspection than their customers.
