Establishing a Receiving Inspection Procedure


Involved In Discussions

I need to establish a Receiving Inspection procedure.
can someone explain to me how to do it? ?:bonk::bonk:

should I have a form (checklist) for each inspected part, and should I document this form?

or should I have forms only for rejected parts?

Should I have a test plan for each part??

Thank you for your help!!!



For Food Materials

We are using "Material Acceptance report" for each material received based on specifications for each product.

In procedure you can write the acceptance method, rejection of materials, handling of rejected materials (concessions or dumping) with or without statistical sampling method.

It may/may not work with you

components such as pump, compressors, metal sheets (mechanical design parts) after painting and coating HVAC components more or less


Trusted Information Resource
You may want to consider an inspection and test plan where details of what, when, how, criteria and others are listed for each of the parts. It could range from just a visual inspection for painted parts to details such as sampling plans recommended and further tests for parts such as compressors, etc.

The criteria used usually originate from customer requirements to in house criteria and requirements that were accumulated over time or other industry specific requirements.

Hi alonFAI,

Check-lists are a good way to both ensure that incoming products are inspected and also as a record of incoming inspection for any external or customer audits.

I have an add-on to this if I may? I've just completed an internal audit and found that, as expected, smaller sub-assembly items (bushes etc) do not get 100% verified. We simply do not have the resource to check the quantities of these deliveries, besides, we often order 10% more than we need.

Rolls-Royce SABRe2 requirements state:

a) 'Have a receipt inspection process to verify that the purchased product meets the purchaser's requirements'

To me, quantity is a crucial requirement, but ensuring that there are 500 bushes (cost of ?0.20 each) is not value adding (even if there are only 495 in the delivery), and time and resource could be spent in a much better way.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, hope you don't mind me gate-crashing your question alonFAI, although will probably help answer yours too....

Cheers :)
