Source Smarter with Global Sources

Global Sources Supplier Verification Processes
The following describes our supplier verification related systems, processes, icons and search filters.

Verified Suppliers are suppliers and exhibitors whose business registration details have been verified by independent third parties such as D & B (Dun & Bradstreet), Ease Credit, Experian or TÜV SÜD. (For buyers’ convenience also includes some suppliers who have not been verified.)

Verified Manufacturers are Verified Suppliers whose business scope, as licensed by relevant government departments, allows them to manufacture goods.

Exhibitors have been verified face-to-face by Global Sources staff and have had a physical booth presence at one or more Global Sources trade shows.

Business Registration Profile presents business information obtained from relevant government agencies, checked and provided by independent third parties such as D & B (Dun & Bradstreet), Ease Credit, Experian or TÜV SÜD. Details include year established, authorized capital, legal representative and business scope.

Supplier Capability Assessment is an independent, third-party report based on an onsite visit, and includes in-depth information about suppliers’ operations, production capabilities, QC processes, management and more. It is an optional paid service for all Verified Suppliers.

Counterfeit Products and IP We reject or pull-down suppliers proven to be fraudulent, but we are unable to intervene or make judgments in commercial disputes between buyers and suppliers. We also work closely with intellectual property rights holders to remove any counterfeit or infringing products.

For a list of Global Sources trade shows exhibited at by an Exhibitor, mouse over the Trade Show icon next to the supplier’s name and click the View All link.

You can also filter search results by Star Ranking . Companies with more stars are generally larger and more experienced exporters. In addition, companies with more stars have paid more to get more exposure, and to provide you with more information to evaluate their capabilities.
