Initial Production Check includes several on-site inspections by third-party inspectors to assess your manufacturer’s production capacity, materials, and the implementation of the requirements. The inspections start before production begins to ensure the supplier can deliver an acceptable quality limit (AQL). It can last until 20% of production has been completed for First Article Inspection. The first items off the production line are inspected to correct any defects before mass production.
DUPRO, also known as On-Line Inspection, is an on-site product inspection in China conducted in the early stages of production when about 20% of the batch has been produced. It is undertaken to track quality and production progress. Importers engaging with suppliers from China can hire a QC expert to conduct DUPRO in the supplier’s factory to surface any defects before too many items are produced. DUPRO in China can help you reduce costly defects and quality issues in the early stages of the manufacturing process.
Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is a systematic inspection of a sample selected randomly from all the batches already produced. It is conducted based on ISO standard sampling procedures to detect and solve any quality or conformity issues before the shipment. PSI is carried out near the end of production when at least 80% of the units in the order have been produced and ready for delivery.
Container Loading Check (CLC) is the final step in product inspection for imports from China and focuses on ensuring that only approved products are shipped. Your third-party QC inspector will check the accuracy of the total quantity and the number of products loaded in regards to sizes, color, and styles in shipments. The number of products loaded for shipments heading to different destination markets is checked. Any issues with the quantity loaded are addressed before shipment is delivered to you.
