Why do you need TIC services

TIC Services

Global trading comes with risks. Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) services ensure that goods or products being traded meet the required levels of safety, quality or performance, mitigating any risks that are identified. This provides the trust needed, that the goods meet specified standards, whether it is for import regulations or customer or market requirements.

As a TIC company, CWM plays a critical role in many industries, eliminating risks and providing the trust needed to be able to trade in confidence. Supply chains are becoming increasingly complicated, often combining a multitude of activities in many locations. Because of this, any weak links appearing in the chain can present critical risks to business. Using inspection services to mitigate these risks, often combined with testing and certification services, maintains the supply chain integrity – this improves the quality and reliability of supply chains, essentially providing a competitive advantage to our customers.

TIC services for buyers

Our clients for TIC services are often buyers of goods or materials, seeking an assessment of a product or consignment conformity before the goods are shipped from the supplier. This may be just for the buyer’s satisfaction, that the goods meet their required standards, or it may be for country specific requirements, essential for imports. Some products or materials may need to be tested to specific standards to ensure conformity, this may be international or country specific product standards, or it could be customer specific requirements.

TIC services: Certificate of Conformity

Often, we will issue a product certificate or a consignment certificate, in the form of a Certificate of Conformity (CoC), which is required by many import authorities for market entry. Just as often, our clients can be the sellers of goods to local or international markets who want a CWM inspection certificate as a recognized validation of product or consignment conformity, which in turn provides assurance to buyers and or authorities controlling specific markets.

  • Waste industry

    Mainly due to the numerous benefits for the environment, recyclable materials have become commodities in high demand and shipments of waste paper, plastic and scrap metal are constantly being shipped globally. Because of this it has become a very standardised and controlled industry.

  • Consumer goods

    Consumer goods, or final products, are products that are eventually bought by individuals or households for personal use. Compliance to quality or safety standards is extremely important, not only because of consumer expectations or market requirements, but sometimes more importantly due to regulatory compliance for market access.

  • Minerals and Metals

    Poor quality minerals or metals can be expensive for business and can be the cause for safety or environmental concerns and so it is essential that suppliers or traders manage the risks.

  • Food

    Global trade is critically important for providing food when and where it’s needed, it is also just as important that the food supplied is sufficient, safe and nutritious. Therefore, CWM plays a critical role by providing TIC services to the food industry to ensure quality and safety of food products as well as the transport or storage methods used.

  • Agriculture

    Agricultural products often have a complex path, from the fields or farms to the kitchen or plates of the end consumers. In global trade, taking good measures to eliminate risk for the agricultural products throughout the supply chain is essential to maintain integrity and to provide much needed transparency.

  • Sustainable tourism

    Travelers are becoming more aware of the potential impact they have on the environment and communities. They expect tourist hosts or facilities to be more accountable for their current and future economic, social and environmental impacts. Sustainable tourism certification is a credential that gives evidence of good sustainable tourism management.

    Any issues with machinery or industrial equipment can have damaging consequences for projects, affecting timescales, cost and of course safety and performance. But, non-compliant machinery or equipment is avoidable, with the right measures in place.
