Date:9/19/2007

HONG KONG, Sept. 19 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- To help buyers identify suppliers offering safe, high-quality products from China, Global Sources (Nasdaq: GSOL) and Bureau Veritas, one of the world's largest and most-trusted certification authorities, have launched the B2B industry's most comprehensive supplier assessment service.

Co-developed by the two companies, the Supplier Capability Assessment Service verifies a range of supplier information including facilities, legal entity status, staffing, export markets, key clients, production capabilities, product capabilities, management systems and accreditations, quality control systems and development and expansion plans.

All information is obtained from in-person visits, face-to-face interviews and third-party verifications.

This service is a key component of the next generation of Global Sources Online scheduled to launch next month. The site will feature a comprehensive industry-wide search engine providing a depth and breadth of content unmatched in the industry -- and featuring an extended supplier verification toolset.

Supplier Capability Assessments of participating suppliers will be available for free to buyers at Global Sources Online ( http://www.globalsources.com ). Before the end of the year, four additional assessments, as well as production inspection and product testing services, will be available to buyers for a fee. These will address supply chain security, environmental safety, chemical safety and quality management.

Global Sources and Bureau Veritas plan to focus initially on baby and children's products, with plans to roll out the service to other product categories.

Global Sources' Chairman and CEO, Merle A. Hinrichs, said, "For 36 years, Global Sources has led the industry in verifying suppliers through our own stringent quality checks. Before a supplier is allowed to join our community, we visit them at least three times to confirm their company and product information.

"Earlier this year, we launched our Verified Supplier Service which enables buyers to clearly see at our website which suppliers have passed our inspections.

"Now, buyers can source from our suppliers with even more confidence knowing that an additional comprehensive assessment has been performed by one of the world's largest and most-trusted certification authorities."

Bureau Veritas' Vice President of Sales & Business Development, Lisa Bate, said, "Global Sources and its suppliers already have a reputation for quality. Through this partnership we aim to add an additional level of transparency to the sourcing industry that, until now, did not exist on-line. This program will only enhance that reputation by providing the B2B industry's most comprehensive assessment reports on China suppliers."
