Inspection Laws Law and Legal Definition
An inspection law refers to that law which authorizes the inspection and examination of various products intended for sale. For example, inspection of food stuffs to value it’s fitness for use.
The object of inspection laws are discussed in the following case. "The object of inspection laws is to improve the quality of articles produced by the labor of a country; to fit them for exportation; or, it may be, for domestic use. They act upon the subject before it becomes an article of foreign commerce, or of commerce among the States, and prepare it for that purpose. They form a portion of that immense mass of legislation which embraces everything within the territory of a State, not surrendered to the General Government; all of which can be most advantageously exercised by the States themselves. [ Gibbons v. Ogden, 22 U.S. 1 (U.S. 1824)].
