MEANING OF QUALITY CONTROL UNDER EXPORT IMPORTQuality control is defined as “a deliberate and planned activity having for its object the determination of quality of a product with a view to accepting it as such in case it satisfies stipulated requirements, or in case it does not satisfy these requirements to take necessary measures to correct the quality appropriately. Control of quality is best exercised during the course of production of an article, actually staring from with the raw materials, going through the various stages and ending up with the final product, paying due attention to packing, storage and transport".

"Pre-shipment inspection is the process of inspection of a batch of goods, just prior to shipment to determine whether it satisfies the conditions for shipment, which may be concerned either with the quality, weight, packaging, contraband character, etc."

To 'ascertain' the level and 'ensure' that the level meets the expected requirements is the main theme of quality control. The level of quality-high, medium or low- depends upon how rich or poor the specifications are. The quality of the product is determined with reference to the requirements of the buyer. It should be understood in the relative sense but not in absolute sense of the term. It is immaterial whether the quality of the product is high or low. What is important, the quality should meet the requirements of the buyer.

sm: We are an indenting agents in this field for more than 6 years, we were able to sort out all types of issues except weight shortage claims. Generally, in most of the consignments the loading port weight of the cargo will be same as the destination port weight. In some cases, there will be some weight shortage in the destination port, because of moisture and travel period. In such case, there will be some dispute with buyer and seller. As you are an import and export consultant, please guide us, the exact allowable weight shortage percentage in the destination port. Please give us any such guidelines published in journals or GO regarding percentage of allowable weight shortage
