IN.CO. S.r.l on-call inspectors visit manufacturers and related sub-contractors to verify some specific and crucial stages of production, which have been previously agreed between client and vendor and are identified on the Test Plan as spot witness, spot witness, hold or review points.
The presence of inspectors is requested and defined through the notifications issued by vendors: the most suitable profile is chosen and agreed with client according to the specific skills required for the situation on the basis of the material to be inspected and the test/activity to be carried out.
