 What does AQL Inspection represent?

The AQL inspection allows organizations to make informed decisions about accepting or rejecting a production batch based on the level of defects found in the sample.

 How to read AQL Chart?

To read AQL Chart or Table - 

  • Identify the AQL Level and lot size range
  • Find the Sample Size Code Letter & determine its size
  • Perform inspection and compare the results 
  • Decide on Lot Acceptance

 What is the use of an AQL table?

The AQL table is a valuable tool used in quality control to determine the sample size and acceptance criteria for inspecting a batch of products. It helps ensure that the batch meets the acceptable quality level (AQL) as defined for the specific product.

 What does 1.5 AQL mean?

An AQL of 1.5 means that the acceptable quality level for the production batch is 1.5%. In other words, no more than 1.5% of the total items in the batch are allowed to be defective

 What are the types of AQL?

There are two main types of AQL used in quality control:

General Inspection Level AQL

Special Inspection Level AQL

 What is AQL level 1 2 and 3?

AQL (Acceptable Quality Level) levels are used in quality control and sampling procedures to determine the maximum number of defects that are considered acceptable in a batch of products. The AQL level is denoted by a numerical value followed by a designation of I, II, or III representing different inspection stringencies. Each level has its own corresponding acceptable quality levels for critical, major, and minor defects.


Here are the typical AQL levels and their corresponding defect acceptance rates:


AQL Level I (AQL 1.0):


Critical Defects: 0

Major Defects: 2.5%

Minor Defects: 4.0%


AQL Level II (AQL 2.5):


Critical Defects: 0

Major Defects: 4.0%

Minor Defects: 6.5%


AQL Level III (AQL 4.0):


Critical Defects: 0

Major Defects: 6.5%

Minor Defects: 10.0%

 How to do AQL sampling?

AQL sampling, which stands for "Acceptable Quality Level" sampling, is a widely used method to inspect and determine the quality of a batch of products. It involves randomly selecting a sample from the batch and inspecting it according to a predefined set of criteria. The results of the inspection help determine whether the batch meets the acceptable quality level or not. Here are steps on how to perform AQL sampling:


Step 1: Define AQL Levels and Inspection Criteria

Step 2: Determine Sample Size and Acceptance Number

Step 3: Randomly Select the Sample

Step 4: Inspect the Sample

Step 5: Count and Record Defects

Step 6: Compare Results with AQL Criteria & decide on next steps

 What does AQL 2.5 mean?

AQL 2.5 denotes that the permissible threshold for major defective goods is 2.5% of the total order quantity. If the batch produced contains a defect level that surpasses 2.5% defects, the product's quality does not meet the agreed-upon standards.
