Government, Trade and Market Access Services

In today’s world of trade, success is triggered by the ability to offer the right products at the right time complying with the exact requirements. With increasing globalization, the risk of products and materials not being delivered on time and/or lacking the quality agreed upon grows. At the same time business partners in different parts of the world have the common need for a guarantee that ordered components, materials and equipment align with given specifications.

As a result, governments implement Pre-Shipment Inspection programmes to ensure that imports comply with their national regulations. An independent third party like TÜV Rheinland provides pre-shipment inspection services to ensure that equipment, components and relevant documentation conform to contractual requirements.
