Pre-Shipment Inspection

We perform quality inspection of products prior to shipment and ensure conformity to specifications and international safety standards.

Pre-shipment inspections (PSI) are performed on-site at the factory or forwarder’s warehouse before containers are loaded and sent to the port. They are conducted when the order is at least 80% complete and packed.

Pre-shipment inspection in China facilitates the prompt evaluation of a sample of almost the entire shipment. It serves as the final quality control check before the delivery of goods, and is, therefore, also referred to as a Final Random Inspection (FRI).

SherBright Independent PSI inspections allow you to gauge the quality of your order and decide whether or not you need to take corrective actions before the products are sent for shipping. Our expert team of quality control inspectors will inspect your goods to see if they conform to the international standards and requirements.

How Does SherBright Perform the Pre-shipment Inspection in China?

At SherBright pre-shipment inspection entails randomly sampling your goods to determine if they are in accordance with the internationally accepted standard, ANSI/ASQC Z1.4 (ISO 2859-1). This is followed by a comprehensive quality assessment of the selected samples with the help of a series of product tests and AQL inspection.

The elements in our checklist are tailored to accommodate your unique requirements and the quality standard of the target market.

PSI checks include the following factors:

  • Workmanship
  • Quantity
  • Style & colors
  • Artworks & labels
  • Dimensions & weight
  • Shipping marks
  • Packing & packaging
  • Tests (including tests on product function, performance, durability, and safety)
