Types of Inspections

Goodada inspections are designed to provide you with solutions to all areas of your quality control management. We tailor every inspection to meet your specific QC requirements. Your assigned inspection supervisor will work closely with you to ensure that every inspection meets your requirements.

Finished Goods Inspection (pre shipment inspection) 

A Finished Goods Inspection (Pre Shipment Inspection PSI) is the most important inspection which confirms the complete order quality levels. A Finished Goods inspection requires a minimum of 80% of goods to be completed and be packed into boxes. Samples of the goods are randomly selected using the internationally recognised AQL standard for sample selection. There should be a 3-5 day window between this inspection and the container being loaded.

Container Loading Inspection

During a Container Loading Inspection, an Inspector will inspect the loading process, the condition of the container, the quantities of the product, ensure the proper handling of your goods as they are being loaded. All stages of the loading process are recorded. Final payment should only be released after this report and a copy of the Bill of Lading has been received.


Production Monitoring

An Inspector will remain at the factory throughout the production process. This is suitable for companies who require continuous updates to ensure that production timelines and quality control checks are maintained and recorded. An Inspector will monitor the production schedule, supervise the factory's internal quality control, conduct random inspection from raw material to the finished products and report to you every day.


During Production Inspection

A During Production Inspection is performed at the early stages of production when around 15% of an order is completed. It focuses the processes and products being produced so that any problems can be uncovered at an early stage, this will allow more time for reworking and correction. It will also confirm whether the production process is on schedule.

Early Production Inspection

An Early Production Inspection focuses on the Raw Materials that are to be used to manufacture the products. With this inspection samples of the raw materials can be collected and sent to a laboratory for testing to ensure that confirmation of standards and requirements.

Factory Audit (FA)

A Factory Audit will verify your supplier and provide you with a full and detailed understanding of your supplier's production capacity capabilities, quality control practices and procedures, and their day to day operating and management procedures. The Factory Audit will assist you to select a supplier who meets your requirements as it will uncover problems before production or order confirmation.
