Pre-Shipment Inspection In China, Vietnam, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Cambodia
Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI), also known as Final Random Inspection, is the most common inspection type to confirm the whole shipment’s quality level. It normally requires the production to be completed and at least 80% of goods packed into cartons.
The inspected samples are selected at random, according to international standards and procedures. V-Trust uses ANSI/ASQ Z1.4-2008 (AQL) as its sampling standard and acceptable level of quality.
When is a suitable time to conduct a Pre-Shipment Inspection?
A Pre-Shipment Inspection is suggested to be scheduled at least 2 working days before the planned loading date, so that the buyer can have enough time to check the report and decide whether to release the shipment as planned, or to discuss corrective actions with the manufacturer.
