VQC (Virtual Quality Control), is a type of remote inspection that partners are required to do with Xometry quality inspectors. There are essentially 2 types of VQC that you will come across. The first is a Standard inspection VQC. This is for jobs that require a Standard Inspection. The second is a Report VQC. This is for jobs that require Formal Inspection, CMM Inspection, or First Article (FAI) Inspection.
To efficiently serve our partners and maintain our part quality, we now require that all partners deliver their VQC documentation to our quality team for review by 12 pm (in your respective time zone) to offer same-day inspection.
After you complete your third (3) job and maintain a Quality Partner Success score of 80+, the Virtual Inspection (or VQC) will no longer be required for Standard Inspections. Non-Standard Inspections will still require VQC, as is the current process.
