1.2 Field of application
The Inspection report message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.
An Inspection report message is sent by a customer's inspection service, or his agent, to a supplier and other interested parties indicating the results of an inspection on items that are due to be delivered to a customer. The inspection report indicates whether or not the items are in compliance with the reference document and in the case of non-compliance, either that the item has to be reworked, or the estimated cost of a non-conformity, if the item is not compliant but acceptable.
