Pre Shipment Inspection Third Party International Standard
An inspection of contract goods prior to shipment so as to
ascertain their quality, quantity or price. Importers may insist on
PSI, requiring the exporter to furnish a certificate of inspection
– commonly issued by neutral, internationally respected firms such
as SGS o Bureau Veritas) – so that the importer is assured of
receiving goods of quality/quantity specified in the sale contract.
Government agencies may require inspection certificates as regards
price, so as to prevent parties from under or over invoicing in an
attempt to pay lower customs duties or evade foreign exchange
restrictions. See certificate of inspection.

A pre-shipment inspection is a step taken by trade operators
(buyers, suppliers, agencies) to inspect newly manufactured
products before they are shipped for export/import.
The purposes of a pre-shipment inspection are to:
- Check the quantity and quality of the merchandise
- Check products for any defects
- Ensure products meet the safety requirements of the destination
- Issue report for import and billing
Pre-shipment inspections were officially introduced in 1994 as an
agreement to improve international trade standards under the
General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), which was later
replaced by the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
A number of obligations were included in the “Agreement on
Pre-Shipment Inspection,” stating that pre-shipment investigations
should be applied according to the following principles:
- Protection of confidential business information
- Avoidance of delays
- Price verification based on the price of identical or similar goods
in the country of exportation, in which the exporter has the
opportunity to explain the price charged
- Inspection agencies establish appeals procedures, the findings of
which are made available to other exporters
Accredited inspection agencies perform pre-shipment inspections
when production is at least 80% complete. This is your final
opportunity to take corrective action before your production is
shipped, making it an effective tool to safeguard your product
against costly import risks.
The pre-shipment inspection typically covers: functionality,
performance, durability, overall appearance, and dimensions.
Following a successful pre-shipment inspection, the agency issues
an inspection report document which accompanies the consignment to
