Pre-shipment Inspection

PSI Inspections ensure that production complies with specifications of the buyers and/or the terms of a purchase order or letter of credit. A Final Random Inspection (FRI), checks finished products when at least 80% of an order has been produced and export-packed. Samples are selected at random, according to standards and procedures. Other types of pre-shipment inspections are:

An example of the quantity inspection:

Expected Result: Result Actual Finding / Comments
80% of the total order quantity must be packed OK
100% of the total order quantity must be finished OK
Packed Quantity Failed
Semi-finished Quantity N/A

Pre-shipment inspection can diminish risks inherent to Internet commerce like phishing and fraud.

It is a systematic and statistical inspection of units selected at random from all batches of your order, conducted when your production is completed at a certain percentage.

This is your final opportunity to take corrective action before your production is finished and packed; making it an effective tool to safeguard your product against costly import risks.
