We focused our inspection services


As per our Client's requirement, we provide shop inspections services of mechanical and electrical equipments.

The assignments are perfomed as spot and / or full time (Residence) on call basis.


We can cover the following steps:

  1. Pre – Inspection Meetings (PIM)
  2. Shop Inspection
  3. FAT Test (Factory Acceptance Test)
  4. Monitoring of ITP tests during fabrication
  5. Visual and dimensional inspection
  6. Quantity check
  7. Final inspection & Technical Assessment
  8. Documental review
  9. Others steps


The pre-shipment inspection can be agreed upon between a buyer, a supplier, and a bank, and it can be used to initiate payment for a letter of credit. 

A PSI can be performed at different stages before shipment, such as checking the total amount of goods and packing, controlling the quality or consistency of goods, checking of all documentation, as for example test reports, packaging list, or verification of compliance with standards of the destination country like
