Inspection is one of the most serious procedures of elementary investigation. It is serious by definition since it deals with the human's most hidden secrets by probing into his person, residence, letters or belongings. The right to have secrecy is another face (manifestation) of man's right to a private life. Inspection is one of the most significant and effective investigation procedures because it may reveal material evidence that can assist in uncovering the truth about a crime and its relevance to the defendant.

This study is concerned with the definition of inspection, identification of its features and legal adaptation. It also deals with exploration of the differences between inspection and other procedures that may be confused with it, examination of its objective and formal conditions, and, finally, research into cases of inspection nullity (void ness, invalidity, and annulment).
