In our vision inspection is investigating whether the properties, characteristics or end results of a design, product, service or process meet the stated requirements.
Why should you carry out an inspection?
to achieve optimal functioning of the design, product, service or process
to ensure that you get what you are looking for
to minimize risks to safety, health, environment and well-being
An inspection must meet requirements, such as independence, expertise and mutual trust. Anyone involved in the production of a design, product, service or process can carry out checks. But he may never be held responsible for inspecting his own work. Any errors which may have been made are often overlooked because of limitation of insight and competence.
Therefore it is of vital importance that inspections are carried out by independent parties. These parties should also have specific technological know-how of the company's operations in question.
