Outsourcing commodities monitoring programmes

Protect & defend the interest of the States

Business Challenge

International trade is on the rise and involves an increasing number of players including traders, brokers, banks, insurance companies and public bodies at both national and international level. In any transaction where goods are bought and sold, there is a transfer of ownership. This is made more complicated by the fact that the transaction is taking place across different countries. The various parties need guarantees from an independent third party to provide reassurance of the conformity of goods.

Solution

What is the scope of the Commodities Monitoring Programme?

•    Check the quantities declared at export or import by operators
•    Check the qualities of the product exported or imported
•    Secure the right taxes as a result of the two steps above
•    Fully reap the benefices of their local production
•    Transfer know-how and knowledge

The inspection can be performed at different stages in the product cycle including at the production site, on producing platforms, at storage locations, at loading or unloading installations, on vessels, or in road tank trucks. Bureau Veritas inspectors survey the operations, report on the visual condition of the cargo, check the quantity, and draw samples to check quality by laboratory analysis. Other specific services can be provided. Reporting and data are provided in real time to the Authorities during any operation.

What are the key benefits?

•    Reassuring actual weight and quality (or other criteria) of products
•    Providing transparent data to the Authorities
•    Protecting state’s interests
