Pre-Shipment Inspection

Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is an essential element of supply chain management. Pre-shipment inspection is done at the end of production when 80% to 100% of goods have been manufactured and packed for export.

Tetra Inspection inspectors will visit your vendor’s site to conduct a physical inspection of goods on a randomly selected sample of manufactured products using the statistical sampling procedure commonly know as AQL or ISO 2859-1 (ANSI/ASQ Z1.4).

Pre-shipment inspection checklists provide an extensive classification of defects and on-site tests based on international standards (EU, USA, AU, and more).
