MANAGE QUALITY RISK
without any physical communication, it also opens up possibilities for fraud & delivery of sub-standard
goods. IMEX provides inspection services to ensure that your goods meet the quality standards promised
by the supplier and are consistent with your approved samples.
We offer Inspection Services at different stages of your production, can greatly reduce this risk for you, especially when quality standards are defined clearly by the client and an inspection is agreed in advance with the supplier.
PSI (Also known as “Final Random Inspection” (FRI) is the most common inspection undertaken to manage quality risk and is executed once the goods are ready and packed.
We advise clients to agree to PSI in advance with the supplier & make it part of the purchase agreement for it
to be even more effective.
IMEX Provides PSI is both as an ad-hoc service as well as part of the 360-degree sourcing service.
With pre-shipment inspection, an IMEX inspector would visit the factory (or supplier’s warehouse) and
physically inspect the goods after completion of at least 80% of production (or 100% depending on the client
Loading inspection is the second most common type of inspection and is normally carried out at the time of loading the goods into the container.
- You want to ensure that the right product and quantities are loaded into the container.
- You require the goods to be loaded according to a very specific loading plan.
- You are consolidating a container from multiple suppliers and want to verify quantities.
It is normally carried out after a Pre-Shipment Inspection and in cases where a PSI is not required, it is carried out where a Client has had disputes in the past about the quantities being loaded.
During Production Inspection:
A DUPRO is carried out when 20% of the goods are ready, during the production process to identify quality issues early. DUPRO is normally a good option if using a vendor for the first time, when time is of the essence, when producing large quantities of goods, when producing quantities in continuous production or when there are strict compliance requirements.
Inspectors use the latest testing methodologies & our intensive inspection experience ensures that
defective or sub-standard products are spotted before you make the final payment to your supplier.
Some of the key inspection criteria include quantity, appearance of products, workmanship, production
functions, colours, dimensions,
