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 2012 the Vietnamese Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, in coalition with the Ministry of International Trade, published directives for the importation of the waste material such as paper, plastic scrap, rubber waste and scrap metal. In these directives it is stipulated that each consignment of recyclable paper, plastic, rubber or metal, imported into Vietnam should undergo a pre shipment inspection prior to the loading of the consignment.
Although the directives stated pre shipment inspections are compulsorily as from January 1st 2013, actual verification of PSI’s proves still to be a gap in the system.
