What is procurement inspection?
Procurement inspection is a systematic inspection of bought out items against compliance to technical specification of customer and acceptable standards before getting delivered at the customer place.
Why is procurement inspection important?
With increasing globalisation, procurement of goods and services happen across countries. This complicates the risk faced by the buyer. Buyer need to ensure that quantity and quality of goods they receive is consistent with specifications. Due to resource constraint, buyer can offload inspection services to professional inspection agency like TÜV SÜD to take advantage of technical expertise and timely inspection.
