Sample Approval Process

Xmultiple provides customers with a Sample Approval Form to complete before ordering new products. This is to be submitted after the testing of the sample has been performed by the customer. This form is to assure the product meets the customer's requirement and is being ordered based on approved evaluation of the samples we provide prior to ordering.

The Sample Approval Form is to be signed by two people within your company, therefore providing a double verification on all the specifications of the sampled product which meets your needs. Signing our Sample Approval Form is not a requirement, however this does provide you with a means to document and control your approval process with Xmultiple.

Sample Approval Form and Sample Procedures/Documents


Sample testing should include a complete physical and operational test to assure the part meets your requirement. Samples are provided to assure a customer tests Xmultiple's connectors or components on their product prior to ordering. The testing should include the review of the technical specifications, and documentation such as tests reports, engineering analysis, installation procedures, etc.

Xmultiple provides samples for customers to evaluate, test and approve our connectors and components. If the Xmultiple product is ordered after samples have been provided, the customer assumes responsibility to use the approved parts they order. This responsibility is assumed whether or not our Sample Approval Form is filled out or signed by the customer.
