QA International has one of the industry’s most trusted, reliable testing labs in China.
In 2003, we started developing a consumer product testing lab in Hangzhou, China. Our USA-China joint venture laboratory, HQTS-QA International (CPSC Certified Lab #1041, ISO 17025, CNAS L3219 ilac-MRA) is now one of the largest and long-established privately-owned independent laboratories in all of China.
We’ve recently expanded to labs in three locations in China. We boast one of the most diverse arrays of testing services and expertise in the industry. When you work with us, you’re never just a number in a lab with rotating managers. You’ll always have the attention of one of our owners.
