1.0 The following are the agencies for inspecting the materials purchased from trade by ICF.
1.1 The Rate and Running contract items supplied by DGS&D are generally pre-inspected by its inspection wing before making supply i.e. Director of Inspection (DOI) or Director of Metallurgical Inspection (D.I.Met).
1.2 Other than DGS&D items which are of complicated nature and which are required to be inspected at firm's works are generally inspected by RITES.
1.3 Safety items which are under developmental stage and certain critical items have been identified for inspection of RDSO only.
1.4 All other general stores which are regularly procured are subjected to consignee inspection at ICF. A separate Inspection Wing is functioning in ICF. For all mechanical items inspection is done by Dy.CME/Inspection. If any chemical property or ultrasonic test is required samples are inspected by Dy.Chief Chemist and Metallurgist.
1.5 Although items are pre-inspected by other inspection agencies, the same will be subjected to consignee inspection at ICF on receipt. The Consignee Inspection report will be final.
