    Importing metallic trash and scraps requires the submission of a pre-shipment Inspection Certificate (PSIC) as a mandatory document. There are no radioactive or radiation-explosive materials in the metal scrap that this certificate certifies.

    When manufacturing is at least 80% complete, pre-shipment inspections are conducted by accredited inspection organizations. Before your goods is dispatched, you have one last chance to make any necessary changes, making this a valuable tool for protecting your product from potentially expensive import hazards. When the government of the importing nation mandates pre-shipment inspections (PSI), they are mandatory. Authorities claim that pre-shipment inspections protect their countries against imports of inferior products and minimize efforts to evade paying customs charges by exporters by ensuring that the price offered by the exporter represents the genuine worth of the commodities.

    Orders placed from outside the United States are subject to inspection by a third-party company to ensure everything is as requested. National financial interests are protected by PSI’s mission.

    The following countries currently require or request pre-shipment inspections:
    Angola, Bangladesh, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Comoros, Republic of Congo (Brazzaville), Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa), Cote d’Ivoire, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Guinea, India (see note below), Indonesia (see note below), Iran, Kenya (under review), Kuwait (see note below), Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mexico (see note below), Mozambique, Niger, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, Uzbekistan.
