A Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is a systematic third-party verification of conformance of products selected at random from all batches of your order, and conducted when the goods are under packing and pre-shipment process. By this mean you will have an effective tool to make decisions and obtain evidence to take actions before your production is finished or before your order is packed.
