Product and Shipment Inspection in Nepal

IIQA provides independent inspection services from the start of the production to the final shipment of the products. Our team of qualified inspectors will ensure that the product are delivered as per their requirement and gives the real picture of how the productions look like.

Preproduction Inspection

This pre-production inspection takes place in the beginning of the production. It is to compare the first produced samples against product specifications and approved sample. This serves to detect and prevent problems, which if not identified, might cause customers and manufacturers huge losses. It will also provide some insights on the attention points for mass production .This process approach inspection will ensure that the final product are as per the expectation or the requirement.

During Production Inspection

During Production Inspection, the production is 15-30% completed or varies at certain stages. This inspection will help the buyer to ensure that the production is in progress, identify any defects or delays and the causes before so that corrective action is taken before the production of final product.

Final Random Inspection

This is performed when production is 100% finished and packing is 80% finished. This inspection helps to prevent the defected goods from being shipped. With this service, buyers are able to see whether the quality of the goods they will receive are as expected and determine whether to approve or reject the shipment or request rework actions.

Defect Sorting / Removal

This is usually recommended for high-value merchandise or high-risk orders. For this service, every  and all piece is inspected from a certain angle (workmanship, sizes, etc. as requested) rather than randomly inspected. All defective goods identified are removed for rework or destroyed if possible in case they are re-packed into cartons.

What we do ?

We assess and verify the safety, conformity, and overall quality of a variety of products, such as felt, hemp, pashmina, cotton apparel, and other items which are frequently used in various industries, including fashion, automotive, interior design, and crafts. These goods are
thoroughly examined to make sure they adhere to the necessary standards and specifications. During the inspection process, qualified inspectors carefully examine the felt items for any flaws, inconsistencies, or deviations from the required quality. They assess factors such as the material composition, thickness, density, color, and overall appearance. This includes checking for uniformity in the texture and structure, as well as examining the edges and seams for any imperfections. Furthermore, third-party inspection also ensures that the items comply with relevant regulatory standards and industry guidelines. This involves verifying the absence of harmful substances or chemicals that could pose health risks to end-users. Inspectors may collect samples for laboratory analysis to confirm compliance with specific regulations, such as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and
Restriction of Chemicals) or the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).
