Responsibilities for Vendor Inspection Services

The responsibility of the vendor inspection depends on the inspection and test plan. The responsibility of the Third Party Inspection Company is very different when the scope of inspection is Pre-shipment inspection or detail shop inspection. Some purchasers try, by paying for 1 man-day inspection fee, to transfer all responsibility to the inspection agency, but this is not correct.

The inspection is not eliminating the vendor responsibility to deliver equipment based on what was specified in the purchase order. So if you have received non-conforming equipment to your site and the equipment was already inspected and you have the inspection certificate in your hand, before any judgment, check the scope, which you already specified for your third party inspection agency. Then check and see if that non-conformity could have been identified with that scope of work? If yes, you may discuss this with your inspection agency and resolve the problem.
