Pre Shipment Inspection

by on May.04, 2014, under QPI Ltd Glossary Blog

Pre Shipment Inspection (PSI)

A Pre Shipment Inspection normally commences once 100% of goods are complete and 80% packed. PSI’s can typically be completed in one day, often with one inspector. If it is a large order, multiple inspectors can be used to complete using more “man days” within one calender day.

They are typically conducted as a Final Random Inspection (FRI) under an AQL2 Protocol, but can be 100% inspections or other variations.

Normally the buyer will pay balance owing to the factory and authorize shipping if the PSI results in a PASS Report.

As many buyers rely on the PSI as insurance policy on the shipment it is one of the most booked inspections used. QPI recommends at least one DUPRO before the PSI as a more pro active approach to QC.
