Pre-Shipment Inspection

This service complements Production Oversight by physically inspecting finished product for overt defects. This service includes experienced SolarBuyer Quality Engineers deployed in the factory to inspect samples of finished product and is often used to release individual batches of product for shipment.

In most cases SolarBuyer utilizes the manufacturers own’ inspection equipment but carries out an independent calibration of the equipment before each inspection and conducts the inspection itself independently from the manufacturer.

Standard SolarBuyer or customer-specific inspection criteria and defect rate thresholds may be applied. Defect rates that exceed the acceptance thresholds may result in additional inspection or rejection of product as part of an agreed process to control quality.
