6.Who will approve or reject the shipment?
We inspect the shipment according to the international inspection standards and also according to your instructions, specifications and criteria. The inspection results are given to you by a thorough and illustrated report, which could help you decide whether to allow the shipment of your products. You can accept or reject your shipment to supplier. You are also welcome to address any questions you have in report.
7.How many days prior to loading/ shipment day is good to carry out pre-shipment inspection?
Pre-shipment inspection is always conducted when the goods is 100% finished and at least 80% packed into master cartons (if there is more than one item, at least 80% of each item must be packed into master cartons) prior to inspector’s arrival. It is set default as goods condition in inspection.
Some clients require pre-shipment inspection when the consignment is above 80% finished and 80% packed.
Some clients require pre-shipment inspection when the consignment is 100% finished and 100% packed.
It is suggested pre-shipment inspection should happen at least 2 days before loading/ shipment date, so clients have time to review the report and the issues found during the inspection can be remedied by factory before shipment. (We don’t suggest pre-shipment inspection and Container Loading Supervision happen during the same day)
And for 100% inspection, it is suggested to check all goods before package, as it will save much time and avoid the package damaging during the unpacking procedure.
8.What happens if the vendor does not provide the specified quantity you have ordered during pre-shipment inspection?
If the factory can not provide the right amount of finished products during pre-shipment inspection, the inspector will conduct During Production Inspection instead.
9.What if the lot quality fails inspection?
If the quality fails inspection, it is required that the supplier should rework the whole lot to fix the defectives instead of reworking the AQL sample sizes inspected only. It is recommended that client requires re-inspection after one failed inspection, so the factory’s correction of non-confirming issues can be justified. Re-inspection always happens a few days after the failed inspection date. Clients can discuss with suppliers about who should bear the re-inspection fee.
10.What happens if non-confirming goods are found when the shipment arrives?
It is extremely rare that non-conforming goods Or unexpected rates of defectives make it out of the suppliers after eagle eyes quality inspection. In the vast majority of cases, the root reasons turn out to be damage during shipping Or shipments were approved after a failed inspection and the buyers trust the supplier(who was likely supposed to rework the goods) enough to ship without having performed a re-inspection or a Defect Sorting Service.
Therefore, we highly recommend you to book re-inspection or defect sorting service after a failed inspection and to work with your shipping partners to ensure the product against damage in transit.
11.How can Eagle Eyes ensure anti-bribery?
Eagle Eyes Team work to eliminate our inspectors and employees from any kind of corruption.Our inspectors are experienced, responsible, independent and impartial. We always check with suppliers to know the behaviors of our inspectors at factory and listen to our clients.
