Inspection, Testing and Certification Services

    Inspection, Testing and Certification Services

    We have partnered with Commodity Inspections Services (CIS) to provide independent inspection, laboratory analysis and certification services to the agricultural industry. With this, we provide a “one-stop shop” for all the documentation and certification required for exports.

    CIS now also provides with Managed Agri and Grain service powered by ImpexDocs that allows exporters to have one entity looking after all the documentation required for the export of their product.
