An Initial Production Check (IPC) is an inspection of raw materials and the components prior to production

Intertek will inspect the raw materials and components prior to the start of production. After product samples are provided, we will verify that correct materials, components and accessories have been ordered by the factory to your specifications.

We will randomly select and inspect a sample of partially produced products for potential defects, then report our findings to you.

At each stage of the production cycle our Intertek inspector will produce a full and detailed inspection report, together with a photographic record within 24 hours of the inspection allowing you to see the work undertaken. We have a global network of inspectors and can arrange your inspection within five working days of receiving your request.

An Intertek IPC inspection will provide you with an expert view prior to production  giving you a quality safety net and the confidence that your suppliers will provide you with top quality products supporting the values of your brand.
