INITIAL PRODUCTION INSPECTION (IPI)
The Initial Production Inspection checks the materials or components stored by the manufacturer for the production of your order. It also inspects the initial production run.
This type of inspection identifies defective materials or components, as well as deviations from the customer’s specifications at an early stage, thereby minimizing the occurrence of non-conformities and allowing for timely corrections where necessary.
DURING PRODUCTION INSPECTION (DUPRO)
The During Production Inspection or DUPRO checks semi-finished or finished goods and takes place when a minimum 20% of your order has been produced.
A DUPRO improves your control over production, allows timely correction of defects and improvements to quality. It also allows you to verify that your order is produced according to schedule. Corrective action can be taken accordingly.
FINAL RANDOM INSPECTION (FRI)
The Final Random Inspection checks finished products when at least 80% of your order has been produced and export-packed.
Samples are selected at random, according to AQL sampling standards and procedures.
The FRI ensures that the production complies with your specifications and/or the terms of your purchase order or letter of credit.
