Agricultural Products

Certispec provides comprehensive inspection services for a variety of agricultural products, be they dry or liquid, bulk, bagged or packaged.

As F.O.S.F.A. "Approved Superintendents", and Grain and Feed Trade Association (GAFTA) "Approved Superintendents" our inspectors employ a wide range of skills and experience in the examination and assessment of the goods they are appointed to inspect.


 Marine loading or discharge is supervised and loss or contamination prevented; weighing and sampling equipment is monitored and checked; dead-weight surveys are conducted; samples are carefully taken and submitted to our laboratories for analysis; holds are inspected to determine fitness to receive cargo.

Goods shipped by road, rail or containerized are supervised being stuffed or de-stuffed; attention is given to products requiring temperature control or other special handling; weights, volumes, quantities are verified; sampling is undertaken.
