The Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is one of many types of quality control inspections conducted by HQTS. It 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 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.
The PSI can diminish risks inherent to Internet commerce like phishing and fraud.
