Bulk & break bulk surveyor

Cotecna Inspection SA is accredited by the Philippine Committee for Accreditation of Cargo Surveying Companies (CACSC), as a bulk and break bulk surveyor for cargo entering the Philippines. Cotecna was the first company to have complied with the requirements set by the Philippine government under their Administrative Order (AO) 243-A stating that, effective January 2010, all bulk and break-bulk cargo entering the Philippines must be inspected by accredited surveying companies at their port of origin.

As an accredited surveyor, Cotecna is required to issue a report on the quantity, grade, etc. of all cargo shipments bound for the Philippines. In May 2013, Cotecna formally received re-accreditation that is valid until November 2015.

The importer complying with this procedure is able to file entries for the imported goods and pay duties, taxes and other fees at the pre-shipment stage. This procedure helps streamline import procedures for bulk and break-bulk and permits the importer to rapidly clear Customs upon arrival
