|What is a Pre-Shipment Inspection?|
|Monday, November 16 2009 22:44|
Governments of many countries require pre-shipment inspections (PSI). Inspection of imports at the point of supply is mainly designed to protect the interests of the buyers in the international purchasing process. A pre-shipment inspection includes:
Physical identification of the goods in the country of supply/export to ensure that the goods are in accordance with the description declared by the exporter.
The following websites belong to inspection companies that are responsible to government procedures for PSI. They provide information on countries they are responsible for, and general information that is relevant to pre-shipment inspections.
