Intertek Government and Trade Services has worked for many years developing effective and innovative services for governments, customs authorities, and standards organizations.

These services facilitate international trade through compliance of import and exports with regulatory requirements, enhancing revenue generated through customs duty, improving efficiency and best practice of the international trade process and improve security of the supply chain.

Here are just a few examples of the tailor-made services we offer in trade facilitation.

Single Window

Single Window is an integrated web portal that offers a completely interactive experience to the end user, allowing all those involved in the trading process to enter their documents once and into a single system. The Single Window allows carriers, shipping agents, clearing agents, importers and consolidators to post their shipment manifests and follow the customs clearance process through a secure web-based portal.

Supply Chain Security Services

Intertek supplies tailor-made supply chain security services to governments, airports, customs organisations, port authorities and businesses for protection from all potential supply chain security risks.

Our supply chain security services include

  • Cargo Scanning
  • Security Auditing
  • Security Consultancy
  • Training and Development Services

Conformity Assessment Programmes

Intertek Conformity Assessment Programmes ensure that products are fully tested in a recognised laboratory and a certificate is issued before they are shipped to the client country. Testing is to agreed national, or international standards. Intertek has a vast worldwide network of testing laboratories, meaning that we can operate Conformity Assessment Programmes covering a wide range of products.

Pre-Shipment Inspection Programmes

Intertek provides pre-shipment inspection services to governments to protect import revenues for themselves and their citizens.

Governments implement PSI programmes to ensure that imports comply with their regulations and that the correct customs duty is received.
