Export Inspection Agency is an entity that is administered by the Export Inspection Council which was set up by the Government of India under Section-3 Export (Quality Control and Inspection) Act 1963.
The two things that a buyer is always worried about are the quality and quantity of the products they purchase from the suppliers. Pre-shipment Inspection (PSI) is a technique designed to solve this problem. PSI work is part of the supply chain and it is an effective measure for quality control checks- it checks the quality of goods customers buy from suppliers. When a buyer sets to buy goods they provide a checklist to the supplier that mentions the special requirements of the buyer and this checklist is checked by the Export Inspection Agency.
