Seafood Inspection Services

Our seafood inspection process includes pre-product inspection (PPI), during-product inspection (DUPRO), pre-shipment inspection (PSI) and loading and unloading supervision (LS/US).

Seafood Surveys

Seafood surveys have become increasingly important because of the longer transportation periods and higher chances of quality loss during extended transit.

We offer seafood surveys to assist you in identifying the cause and extent of any damage that may have occurred during transportation. These surveys involve:

  • Pre-inspection survey – The inspector examines the seafood before it reaches its destination
  • Damage survey: Determine the cause of any damage sustained during transit and provide helpful solutions for the future.

Seafood Audits

Our Seafood Factory Audits enable you to choose suitable suppliers and evaluate them based on various aspects as needed. These audits include:

Seafood Testing

We can test your seafood based on national and international standards to confirm whether they are by relevant contracts and regulations in seafood testing laboratories.
