QCA Accredits Sunscope USA
Chicago-based Quality Certification Alliance (QCA), the promotional product industry’s only independent nonprofit dedicated to helping companies provide safe products, has granted QCA accreditation to Sunscope USA, Commerce, Calif.
Sunscope, a family-run and owned business since 1943, completed a rigorous self-assessment and submitted its headquarters and supply base to multiple third-party audits. The QCA board then used a scorecard representing the performance of the company and its supply chain on the third-party audits as the foundation for granting accreditation.
“Sunscope recognizes the importance of managing the supply chain and ensuring product quality, safety and social compliance,” said Dilip K. Bhavnani, chief operating officer of Sunscope, “With state and federal regulations being updated, as well as higher standards being demanded by our client base, we knew it was a good business decision to dedicate the resources necessary to complete the challenging QCA accreditation program.”
“We knew Sunscope took the necessary, proactive steps to provide safe and compliant product, and the accreditation process proves it," added Jeffrey P. Jacobs, executive director of QCA. "We congratulate them on completing the journey.”
