An inspection is, most generally, an organized examination or formal evaluation exercise. In engineering activities inspection involves the measurements, tests, and gauges applied to certain characteristics in regard to an object or activity. The results are usually compared to specified requirements and standards for determining whether the item or activity is in line with these targets, often with a Standard Inspection Procedure in place to ensure consistent checking. Inspections are usually non-destructive.
Inspections may be a visual inspection or involve sensing technologies such as ultrasonic testing, accomplished with a direct physical presence or remotely such as a remote visual inspection, and manually or automatically such as an automated optical inspection.

type of inspection services :
- Components and raw material: Initial Production Inspection(IPI):
is a visual inspection of materials, components and products available at an initial stage of production.
- Materials in process: During Production Inspection(DPI/DUPRO)
- Finished products: Final Random Inspection(FRI)
- Final Random Inspections (FRI) are by far the most popular tool for securing supply chain quality control for consumer goods. FRI normally takes place once 80% of the goods are available. The final result of an inspection usually triggers the shipment and the payment. The accuracy and reliability of your inspection report are crucial in order to take appropriate decisions regarding your products.
- Supplies in storage: Cargo Container Loading Supervision(LS)
- Container Loading Supervision (LS) checks that your order is both complete and securely loaded into its container before shipment. This inspection ensures that the goods delivered by the factory are compliant with your requirements in terms of quantity, assortment, and packaging.
- A container loading inspection also ensures that the export cartons are securely loaded into the container, and that the container is in good condition
