Pre-shipment inspection, (AKA preshipment inspection) or PSI services, is a part of supply chain management and an important quality control method for checking the quality of goods clients bought from suppliers.
Pre-shipment inspection can diminish risks inherent to Internet commerce like poor quality, phishing and fraud. A Pre-Shipment Inspection is a statistical and systematic inspection of units selected at random from all batches of your order, sample sizes are according to an international accepted standard: AQL, 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.
PSI ensures that production complies with specifications of the buyer 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 certain standards and procedures by the on-site inspectors.
