The quantity audit ensures that outgoing goods effectively correspond to the requirements described in various documents, while the quality audit ensures that the goods do not have any obvious defects and meet the requirements set forth in the order or in related documents.
To ensure a prompt response, we have established an extensive inspection network, both nationally and internationally. If more detailed checks are required, we can use our two analysis laboratories, one for chemical and mechanical tests on materials and the other specialized in physical-chemical analyses of agricultural food products.
In the international trading, clients search the guarantee on the conformity of the ordered goods, suppliers seek the certainty to be paid in a short time and besides the governments safeguard national interests against fraud and import of substandard or prohibited goods. Quality and quantity audits are required by some foreign countries and are necessary to release payments by documentary credit or documentary remittance.
Main documents are:
- letters of credit
- customer orders
- pro-forma invoices
- customer-approved packing lists
- technical documentation.
