First Commercial Imports

First Commercial Imports
During the very first commercial import of new food, beverage, or related products that do not require an import license, customs officers typically subject the products to a thorough investigation and approval procedure. Stringent document inspections and laboratory testing will be required as part of the approval procedure to ensure the quality of the products and the safety of consumers. The same applies to already-imported products which have been reformulated or which have undergone significant changes as to appearance. Furthermore, it is up to the discretion of the customs officers to re-investigate products randomly at any time.

Supervising Subsequent Imports
Unanticipated and unprepared-for customs inspections typically result in substantial delays and unexpected costs. Our regulatory experts supervise our customs brokers, are always prepared to support inspections with relevant documentations and to trouble shoot and resolve disputes with the customs officers in order to obtain import grants timely.
