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."
