What is a Pre-shipment Inspection / Final Random Inspection?
A Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) or Final Random Inspection (FRI) is an inspection service that is conducted before shipment when your production is 100% completed and at least 80% packed.
When should you use Pre-shipment Inspection / Final Random Inspection?
Before you ship. We suggest you reserve ample time for a Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) or Final Random Inspection (FRI) according to your shipment schedule. The time to reserve really depends on
- the risk you can take if the inspection result is a fail.
- the time factory needed to take corrective actions.
Why should you use Pre-Shipment Inspection / Final Random Inspection?
A Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) or Final Random Inspection (FRI) is excellent insurance for your business and products before you ship. It is an effective inspection service to ensure the final products and packaging are in line with prescribed specifications.
