    we would like cancel the inspection for 16 Oct.

    - I think the above sentence means you'd like to cancel your schedule of that day.


    we would like cancel the inspection on 16 Oct.

    - Another sentence means you'll be waiting, until that time, to cancel the schedule.

    "We would like cancel the inspection on 16 Oct.":
    On October the 16th, you are going to cancel the inspection, which may or may not be scheduled for that day.


    "We would like cancel the inspection for 16 Oct."
    you have an inspection On October the 16th, and you want you cancel it, you might want to cancel it the day of the inspection (not probable) or you may cancel it before.
