All exports of bulk or break bulk shipments to the Philippines are required by the Bureau of Customs of the Republic of the Philippines to be surveyed by an approved company such as Intertek.
Assessment is carried out to determine the correct dutiable weight, quantity, description of goods in tariff code terms, and/or cargo make or quality.
Upon satisfactory findings a Load Port Survey Report will be issued to the Bureau of Customs. This report will allow the importer to take advantage of Advanced Clearance Procedures.
Shipments requiring Pre-Shipment Survey
Shipments arriving without the report will be subjected to a comprehensive cargo survey at the Port of Discharge and the importer may incur a penalty.
