Monitoring the quality of the products and assuring clients’ confidence


Commodities trading companies, importers, exporters, miners are facing one priority above all: to ensure their projects’ commercial, technical, and operational viability. They must also ensure shipment quality. For commodities traders, importers, exporters, miners and supply chain managers, certainty in the value of commercial settlements is a key concern. Across the entire life cycle, from early-stage exploration through trading to smelting and recycling, companies seek to minimize risk while attaining high industry and international standards.


Bureau Veritas minimizes risk for clients by providing a broad range of essential inspection and testing services throughout the value chain to make sure the quality and quantity of the cargo that they produce, import and export meeting with their requirements.



Clinker is a nodular material produced in the kilning stage during the production of cement and is used as the binder in many cement products. 



Working from the world’s major ports and mining and refining locations, our team of qualified inspectors and laboratory analysts will accurately and swiftly determine the physical properties of materials through supervision of weighing (Including draft survey), sampling, sample preparation and analysis, pre-shipment inspection, loading and discharging inspection.
