First Article Inspection

First Article Inspection Services

As a quality control company, SQIM Global provides First Article Inspection services in Bangladesh , UK and China.

First Article Inspections (FAI), or Initial Production Inspections, are a critical step in ensuring that a product meets all the required specifications set forth by the customer. The purpose of FAI is to prove that a product’s design, manufacturing process, and quality control system can consistently produce parts to meet the customer’s requirements. A successful FAI will provide both the customer and manufacturer with the assurance that any part produced moving forward will meet tolerance levels and perform as expected. FAIs can be performed on both production and prototype parts.

SQIM Global First Article Inspection Services:

As a leading third-party quality control service provider, SQIM Global helps companies to meet their quality control requirements. Our team of experienced inspectors, who understand the fundamentals of the production process, conduct all inspections according to established standards. Each inspector is carefully chosen depending on the product being inspected.

Once assigned to First Article Inspection, our inspector controls product quality at the beginning of the production and uses a personalized checklist to examine each part for accuracy and compliance with customer requirements. Whenever any major or critical anomalies are found during an inspection, our customers are notified at once so corrective measures can be taken.

In a First Article Inspection (FAI), all aspects of the product’s design, manufacture, and assembly are inspected to ensure that they meet the requirements specified in the contract or engineering drawing. The inspectors will verify that the dimensions, tolerances, materials, finishes, and assembly processes are all in compliance with the requirements. In addition, they will evaluate the function of the product and its fitness for use. The results of the FAI are documented in a report which can be used to improve the manufacturing process and prevent problems in future production runs.

In-Process Inspection

In Process Inspection

Companies need transparency and visibility into the manufacture of their products and a reassurance that final product quality will meet their requirements. In-Process Inspection serves these goals. Conducted during the production process at the most critical steps, IPI provides essential information on actual manufacturing conditions and product quality..

An In-Process Inspection is a product inspection conducted during the manufacturing process. This control is carried out at different stages and at predetermined times. The inspection usually occurs when at least 20% of the products are completed. It provides monitoring and assurance that the factory is following established production methodology and techniques. Conducting During Production Inspections helps to identify defects at an early stage and eliminate them before products are finished, which prevents additional costs downstream.

Pre-Shipment Inspection

In Pre-Shipment Inspection

A pre-shipment inspection will determine if there are any defective products in a batch and ensure that the products meet the quality and safety requirements of the target market. It provides the necessary results for deciding if the lot can be accepted or not before shipping. Examining products and documents and determining compliance with required standards avoids customs problems, reduces delays, and prevents defective products from reaching the customer.

Pre-Shipment inspections are guided by sampling. Sampling occurs when the material is 100% produced and 80% packaged for shipment. The principle of this type of inspection is to draw conclusions on the conformity of the batch from the results obtained on a sample rather than inspecting 100%. The sample size is chosen to be statistically representative of the total quantity and the individual units inspected are randomly selected by the third-party inspector. This quality control is the last opportunity to take the necessary corrective actions before shipping. When defective products are identified, they are either sorted or reworked so only compliant products are shipped.

The Pre-Shipment Inspection Precedent

Pre-shipment inspections are increasingly used and required because of an agreement to improve international trade standards under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade amended by the World Trade Organization. In international trade, third-party pre-shipment inspection services may be required to adhere to a letter of credit. When companies deal with foreign suppliers, a letter of credit is often created to protect the monetary interests of the buyer, ensuring that the products are as ordered before the bank releases the funds from the selling company.

SQIM Global Pre-Shipment Inspection Services

Ensuring product quality is an absolute necessity, both for regulatory compliance and brand image reasons. The product must be free of defects and match the required quality standards set by the buyer when it is shipped out of the factory. For many companies, a final random inspection is part of their quality control process. Having an inspector on-site at the factory to compare the purchase order with the actual products ensures a higher level of assurance and control.

SQIM Global offers third-party Pre-Shipment Inspection services in Bangladesh , UK & China. We support companies in conducting this verification independently and efficiently. SQIM Global provides PSI solutions to a wide range of clients in Footwear , Bag, Bely & Leather

As a third-party inspection company, SQIM Global follow the ANSI Z1.4-2008 (ANSI Sampling Table) standard to define the number of units that will be randomly selected for evaluation.

Container Loading Supervision

Container Loading Supervision Services

Container Loading Supervision (CLS), also referred to as Loading Check, is a service designed to safeguard clients from potential shipping complications. It ensures the accurate loading, handling, and documentation of products before they are transported to their final destination.

A container loading supervision service confirms the proper placement and securement of items within the container, verifying that the products comply with the buyer’s expectations and requirements. This inspection procedure is essential for avoiding shipment delays, product damage, and ensuring the safe and efficient delivery of goods.

CLS processes adhere to a systematic approach. The supervision takes place when the products are 100% manufactured and ready for loading into the shipping container. The primary objective of this service is to validate the correct quantity, packaging, and handling of goods, rather than inspecting the quality of each item. The verification is conducted on-site by an impartial third-party inspector who ensures that the loading process is carried out according to established guidelines.

SQIM Global offers Container Loading Supervision services in over 88 countries, catering to a wide range of clients in industries such as textiles, furniture, cosmetics, sporting goods, electronics, electrical equipment, medical devices, automotive parts, food, vehicles, energy equipment, machinery, metal products, construction materials and many more.

Our Loading Check services ensure that the goods are loaded in a safe, efficient, and compliant manner, ultimately protecting the client’s brand reputation and reducing the risk of costly delays and disputes.

SQIM Global’s container loading supervision service consists of the following key steps:

Assessing the container’s state: The inspector evaluates the container for any signs of damage, leakage, or other concerns that could negatively affect the safety of the products during transportation.

Validating product quantity and specifications: The inspector verifies that the correct number of items is present and that they align with the client’s stipulations.
