Khodrocar – "Back in 2012 ISQI was totally carried over to private sector and has no connection with any of the car makers in the country. The criticisms been settled since but new sets of thoughts questioned the validity of ISQI in the field of automobile quality inspections. All these doubts have been settled since ISQI came out first with a considerable differential with all other quality inspection companies when they were validated.” Said ISQI chairman, Ashkan Golpaygani in response to Khodrocar’s journalist regarding the question that why people should trust the ISQI reports.
"It was said that if ISQI become limited in the field of automobile quality inspection with some other similar companies added to the equation, car makers would like to work with others than the ISQI, but it never happened. That is why now only 5 car models are being audited from a total of 50 car models, the rest is done by ISQI.” Added Golpaygani about the exclusivity of ISQI’s field of activities.
"Our inspectors are ready at the end of the production line, picking up samples out of the blue. So it is absolutely denied that we inspect predetermined vehicles for qualifications.” Emphasized Golpaygani in response to the rumour that ISQI inspects preselected vehicles for quality inspections.
"Between 60 to 70 percent of what ISQI does is related to other fields that the automobile industry. Other fields under ISQI inspection are parks, lifts, elevators, CNG tanks, CNG refueling stations and automobile parts. We have been awarded as the best inspectors several times in the recent years. ISQI is the leader and in some points is the one responsible to establish standard right along with National Standard Organization. We are also in charge of training inspectors of other companies.” Added ISQI chairman referring ISQI field of responsibilities.
