5.0 PROCEDURES
5.1 General

A formal Pre-Inspection Meeting will normally be conducted for an order on


equipment which

Is large, complex or expensive.


Has complex client specifications.
Involves an unknown vendor.
It is anticipated that vendor will deviate from the order requirements,
based on past experience.
Requires extensive fabrication or unusual material.
Involve critical testing or Inspection procedures.
Is a critical delivery item.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the technical requirements of the order and
related specification and to indicate inspection points.
The clients will normally advise when a Pre-Inspection Meeting is required. If the
clients request advise on the need for a PIM, it will be the responsibility of the
Operations Manager or his deputy to provide such advise.
5.2 Before The Meeting
The Inspector should within 14 days after receiving the Order Assignment package
set the agenda and make contact with the vendor to schedule the meeting. . The
Agenda for PIM (see Appendix 1) is normally included in the email or fax notification
to the vendor and the client. The PIM is usually held at vendor's premises in order
that ready access can be made to files and shop personnel in the event of a query.
The Inspector is required to thoroughly familiarize himself with the Purchase Order,
requisition and specifications as appropriate.
5.3 The Meeting

Unless the responsibility is assigned to someone else, the Inspector shall chair the
meeting, write the required action email or fax and draft the report. The Inspector
should list all those present, including those attending part-time by name, company
and job title. The meeting should follow the Agenda. As the meeting progresses, the
key points including exception taken and waiver granted will have to be noted in the
meeting summary. At the end of the meeting, these should be reiterated to assure
complete understanding. The vendor must also be given an opportunity to comment
on any topics.
5.4 After The Meeting
The minutes of PIM shall be recorded using appropriate inspection reporting format
as specified in Assignment Instruction.
The narrative report shall address all section headings of the agenda. It should be
adequately detailed and to the point, with extraneous matter omitted. In preparing
the report, it is not intended that each and every item or topic discussed in the
meeting be completely reported. A copy of the report should also be sent to the
designated vendor's representative. Hence items of a sensitive or very controversial
nature should not be put in the PIM Report but be included in the letter of transmittal
forwarding the report or in a separate fax or email to the clients.
Any items requiring action shall either be referenced by detailing responsibility for
action target date, if applicable in the column provided or summarizing individually at
the end of the CAP narrative report in a sentence or short paragraph.
5.5 PIM Report Issue
The numbering sequence of a PIM Report is as follow :1) File number
2) Followed by a suffix "PR" which denotes PIM Report or as the first inspection
report IR001 (This applies only to reports in CAP format).
If this PIM Report is available on time for submission with an Inspection Report, it
should then form as an attachment to the Inspection Report (an example is
illustrated in above para 4.5). If not, the action items resulting from the meeting
should be highlighted on the Inspection Report or on a fax which will then form as an
attachment to the front page of the Inspection Report (an example is illustrated in
above para 4.4). When a formal PIM Report is ready for issue, it should then be
transmitted either with cover email or fax.
