Hide / Show Abstract

To compete and succeed in today’s trading environment, an overseas supplier must not only find a buyer, but must also ensure its products and services meet rigorous quality requirements (i.e. performance, perceived quality, conformity, reliability and durability) demanded by the customer, end user, and others in the global supply chain. While these requirements are much the same for all suppliers and create a level playing field, evidence 1) suggests that some suppliers find high standards and proof of compliance difficult to meet.
