Description of the Subject - Agreement on Preshipment Inspection:

In Foreign Trade, the Preshipment Inspection consists of external companies or bodies verifying the exports of a company. This information can be based on the export price (to avoid over billing), quality or quantity of the products to be exported.

The custom classification of the goods to be exported may also be included in this agreement.

All these practices (Non-tariff Measures and Technical Barriers to Trade), common in Foreign Trade, are recognised in the Agreement on Preshipment Inspection of the World Trade Organisation.

This type of pre-shipment inspections are implemented by the Governments as a Safeguard measure seeking to protect the general interest of the country. These measures also help to prevent tax and Customs fraud.

The Agreement on Preshipment Inspection of the World Trade Organisation forces to the governments to act in a transparent and non-discriminatory manner, in addition to not impeding the foreign trade facilitation.

The Agreement on Preshipment Inspection requires that the inspection be carried out in the custom territory from which the goods are exported.
