Initial-Production Check is a verification of raw materials and accessories carried out just before the start of production to help minmizing the risk of using inferior raw materials.
The IPC is an inspection carried out in the factory premises before the production of your product begins and which ends once 20% of the production volume has been completed. Being a preliminary inspection of all machinery and materials that will be used in the manufacture of your product, the IPC is the first step to ensure a uniform quality of your product throughout the production. An IPC is an early prevention system that, for an amount of USD 240, protects your product against various risks that could lead to very high import charges.
