Pre-Shipment Inspection

Pre-Shipment Inspection | Bureau Veritas

Greater reliability and trade facilitation in government contracts

Authorities and states must ensure that the income from export transactions is correctly recorded. To do this, they need a reliable, independent and global partner. Pre-shipment inspection is a requirement of the respective recipient country. A large number of countries have commissioned inspection companies, most of which operate internationally, to ensure that goods are delivered in accordance with the regulations. If the result of the pre-shipment inspection is harmless, the "Clean Report of Findings" is issued. This is an essential requirement for exporting the goods to the recipient country.
