  • Reporting                            –       A detailed inspection report is generated, highlighting any discrepancies or                                                                                             issues found.
  • Decision                          –       Based on the report, the buyer decides whether to approve the shipment or                                                                                            request corrective actions. 

Core Values

Pre-shipment inspection (PSI) is a quality control process used to verify that products meet the required specifications and standards before they are shipped to the buyer. The inspection is typically performed when at least 80% of the order is packed and ready for shipment. Here are the key parameters typically checked during a pre-shipment inspection:

Product Quantity and Specifications

Verifying that the number of products matches the order quantity. This includes counting the total units and comparing them with the purchase order or contract. Ensuring that the products meet the specified dimensions, materials, colors, and other design criteria outlined in the order or contract.

Packaging and Labeling

Ensuring that the packaging is adequate to protect the products during transit. Verification that packaging materials comply with any specific regulations or standards. Checking that labeling is accurate, including product information, barcodes, and any regulatory marks.

Safety and Compliance

Ensuring that the products comply with the technical specifications, industry standards, and regulatory requirements. This can include size, weight, color, and other specific attributes as outlined in the contract or purchase order. Conducting tests or assessments if required, such as safety tests or functionality tests, to confirm compliance.

Measurements and Dimensions

Measuring the physical dimensions of the products to ensure they match the specifications provided in the order. Checking the weight of the products to ensure they are within the acceptable range specified.

Quality Inspection

Examination of product quality to ensure it meets the specified standards and requirements. This includes checking for defects, proper functioning, and compliance with design specifications. Assessment of materials used, workmanship, and overall finishing of the products.

Workmanship and Quality

Checking for any defects or imperfections in the products, such as scratches, dents, poor stitching, or any other visible flaws. Ensuring that the products function as intended. This might include operational tests for electronics or mechanical items.
