Duties and Responsibilities:
A quality control line inspector thoroughly examines material goods on the production line and either approves or rejects an item based on its final quality. Quality control inspectors are responsible for assuring that manufactured items are made and assembled correctly. They also make sure that the products meet government standards and safety regulations.
General Job Duties:
Quality control inspector work with manufacturing professionals during the production process, often approving the quality of the bulk and line clearance before manufacturing begins.

When a product is completed, a quality inspector tests the performance to determine if it meets manufacturer and industry standards. If a product does not meet specific criteria, recommendations are made to improve the quality of products.
Besides having an understanding of the product or service, a quality inspector must also adapt the tools of the trade.
