We are pleased to announce that our US office has been approved by the Directorate General of Foreign Trade of India. During the Inter-Ministerial Committee meeting for recognition and review of Preshipment Inspection Agency under Appendix 5 the Committee has decided to recognise CWM Survey & Inspection as a preshipment inspection agency ( PSIA ) for the USA.
CWM is now accredited by DGFT Government of India for the USA and can be found in Appendix-5 Handbook of Procedures Vol. I. CWM has been approved for the specific purpose of conducting pre-shipment inspections of metal scrap and as a consequence also for waste paper, rubber scrap and waste plastics.
In Policy Circular No.82 (RE-08)/2004-2009 dated 28.4.2009, it has been clarified that the applications for import of waste paper submitted to MOEF (the Ministry of Environment and Forests) are to be accompanied by the certificate of independent Pre-Shipment Inspection Agency. In this regard, it is further clarified that the pre-shipment inspection certificate shall state that imported material is only waste paper etc. and is free from any hazardous waste including municipal waste, bio-medical waste etc.
With this news our group can now offer inspections on waste materials for the entire USA, European Community and Turkey destined to all Indian ports. We are specialized in waste paper, waste plastic, rubber scrap, ferrous and non ferrous scrap. CWM employs an experienced team of surveyors. Our metal scrap inspectors are highly experienced with different kinds of traded scrap in the industry such as Birch cliff, Berry, Taint Tabor, AluminiumUBC, CRGO, Zamak, Cu transformers, Litho sheets, Brass Honey, precious metal scrap.
