Why get a quality control inspection?
Cotecna offers its clients a straight forward way to limit commercial risks when importing or exporting your goods. Our inspections help you:
- ensure the quantity produced (finished and packed) matches with the quantity ordered
- ensure visual appearance (color, finish) matches with product ordered
- ensure product specifications (measurements, material, functions) comply with the order
- verify packaging, labeling, instructions and markings comply with mandatory standards
What kind of inspection is best for your product?
When to use a quality control inspection?
Initial or Pre Production Inspection (IPI or PPI)
The Initial Production Inspection checks the materials or components stored by the manufacturer to produce your order. We also inspect the initial production run.
During Production Inspection (DPI or DUPRO)
The During Production Inspection checks semi-finished or finished goods and takes place when a minimum 40% of your order has been produced.
Final Random Inspection (FRI) or Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI)
The Final Random Inspection, or Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI), checks finished products when at least 80% of your order has been export-packed.
Container Loading Supervision (LS)
Container Loading Supervision ensures that your order is completed and safely loaded in a container before shipment.
