The Pre-Shipment Inspection-PSI is an important step in the quality control process and is the method for checking the quality of goods before they are shipped.


Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is performed when goods are 100% completed with at least 80% packages finished. Our inspectors select randomly samples from finished goods according to the international statistical standard known as MIL-STD-105E (ISO2859-1). The Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) confirms that finished products are in full compliance with your specifications. 


Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is a range of visual tests that cover:

l                      Quality (appearance, performance, and workmanship)

l                      Quantity

l                      Packaging

l                      Labeling

l                      Shipping marks to achieve regulatory compliance (for example bar code checks)

l                      Drop checks


What is the purpose of PSI?

Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) ensures that production complies with specifications of the buyer and/or the terms of a purchase order or letter of credit. This inspection is conducted on finished products when at least 80% of the order has been packed for shipping. This inspection is done according to standard Acceptable Quality Limits (AQL) specs for the product, or based upon customer requirements. Samples are selected and inspected for defects at random, according to these standards and procedures.


What is the benefits of PSI?

Pre-Shipment Inspections (PSI) are one of a range of on-site product inspections that we conduct to ensure quality and safety throughout the entire production process, from product design through to shipment. They can be used as a one-off service or form part of broader quality assurance, quality improvement or risk assessment programs that are tailored according to your specific needs.
