INSPECTION® offers its clients a straightforward way to limit commercial risks when importing or exporting your goods. Our inspections help you:
ensure the quantity produced (finished and packed) matches with the quantity ordered
ensure visual appearance (color, finish) matches with product ordered
ensure product specifications (measurements, material, functions) comply with the order
verify packaging, labeling, instructions and markings comply with mandatory standards
What kind of inspection is best for your needs?
Initial Production Inspection (IPI): The objective of an Initial Production Inspection, or Pre Production Inspection (PPI), is to identify defective materials or components prior to the production process, thereby minimizing the risk of non-conformities and allowing for timely corrections where necessary.
During Production Inspection (DUPRO or DPI): The During Production Inspection (DUPRO or DPI), or In-line Product Inspection (IPI), checks semi-finished or finished goods part-way through the production process. Generally, this takes place when between 40% of your order has been produced and 20% export-packed. Doing so improves your control over production and allows for timely correction of defects and improvements to quality.
Final Random Inspection (FRI): It ensures that the production complies with your specifications and/or the terms of your purchase order or letter of credit. The Final Random Inspection (FRI), or Pre Shipment Inspection (PSI), checks finished products when at least 80% of your order has been produced and export-packed. Samples are selected at random, according to standards and procedures.
