Inspection Certificate

A certificate of inspection is a important trade document which certifies the condition of a commodity (It is only required on specific goods, such as industrial equipment, perishable items, and meat.) at the point of analysis or inspection, or prior to shipment. Inspection of goods is generally carried out when cargo is to be shipped or transported to different countries, especially developing ones. The certificate is usually required at ports and is expected to contain the details and identity of the inspection party or officer. A certificate of inspection is often a required document for presentation of a letter of credit.
