Why do you need 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.
