What is QCA?
The Quality Certification Alliance (QCA) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit accrediting organization for
industry suppliers. QCA certification helps protect your brand and reputation by offering compliance with the highest
product standards in the market.
Garyline is proud to be accredited by QCA. We opened our factory and our records to the independent auditors of Bureau
Veritas. They inspected all aspects of Product Safety, Social Accountability, Supply Chain Safety, Quality Assurance and
Environmental Stewardship. In 2014 we were recertified with a score of 99.54/1+ Rating.
2016 Recertification is in process and a new QCA Certificate will be posted after the next audit in early December.
QCA’s mission is to provide the supplier base for the promotional products
industry with a common set of third party standards, to consistently
provide safe, high-quality, socially compliant and environmentally
conscious merchandise, while remaining transparent to distributors,
their clients and ultimately the end user.
QCA was established to uphold the integrity of its supplier organization’s
quality standards through a comprehensive, systematic thirdparty
assessment and accreditation process of the suppliers’
compliance efforts and achievements.
QCA is committed to ensuring merchandise that is manufactured, imprinted and imported by accredited supplier
companies conforms to the highest degree of established domestic and international product laws, regulations and
