Avoid loss of business by identifying problems before shipment.
Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is an essential element of supply chain management. PSI is also referred to as a Final Random Inspection (FRI). This inspection takes place at the end of the production process when 80% to 100% of the goods are manufactured and packed for export.
AQF inspectors visit your vendor’s site to conduct a physical inspection of goods on a randomly selected sample of manufactured products using the statistical sampling procedure ISO 2859-1 (ANSI/ASQ Z1.4).
We customize each inspection to focus on what is important for you by combining our standard inspection checklists with your unique product requirements and Acceptable Quality Limits. AQF Pre-Shipment Inspection checklists provide an extensive classification of defects and on-site tests based on international standards (EU, USA, AU and more).
AQF can arrange a Pre-Shipment Inspection in Asia within 48 hours and release your inspection report and certificate of inspection within less than 24 hours.
