Pre-Shipment Price Verification and Norm Compliance inspection services are based on Foreign Trade Survey programs (FTS) established by national governmental authorities or standardization bodies. These services are designed to avoid incorrect deliveries with regard to national and international standards, quality, quantity, packing, marking, and other elementary conctractual requirements.
They also serve to prevent any delivery of goods prone to cause danger to the population of the importing country.
Price verification systems assist customs authorities in avoiding import tax losses due to under-invoicing, incorrect invoicing of freight, insurance or other charges and incorrect declaration of the customs codes (H.S.Code). Control Union International carries out FTS programs for several governments and governmental authorities in Europe, Central Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America.
