An initial inspection will ensure that your specifications have been understood and will help you prevent any inconvenience in the production capacity, raw material, deadlines and management of your order.
What is an Initial Production Inspection (IPC)?
The initial production inspection is an inspection that is performed on the factory premises before manufacturing of your product begins and that is completed after 20% of the production volume has been completed. As a preliminary inspection of all machinery and materials that will be used to make your product, IPC is the first step in ensuring consistent product quality throughout production. An IPC is an early prevention system that protects your product against various risks that could lead to very high import costs.
IPQCCO performs all its inspections in accordance with the internationally recognized ANSI / ASQC Z1.4 (ISO 2859-1) statistical sampling system. This protocol comprehensively covers the following aspects: functionality, performance, overall appearance, and dimension. Quality Inspection certificates are issued, if stipulated in the letter of credit.
