Initial Production Checks (IPC)

The IPC is conducted as soon as the manufacturer has started production and has 50 – 100 pieces completed and ready for packing. The purpose of the IPC is to determine if the initial batch of products produced by the manufacturer complies with the client’s specifications. If at this stage, any deviation beyond established tolerance is noticed, timely corrections are made, before bulk production begins. A written inspection report is prepared, confirming observations and a copy is given to the manufacturer. If required a copy can also be sent to the customer.
