Load and Discharge Supervision

and Inspection

Helping to safeguard your interests

There are a number of risks associated with the shipment of metals and minerals, including loss of material through poor handling and quality variations from contamination or transport damage. These can result in significant financial loss for the commercial parties involved. This is why load and discharge supervision and inspection is so critical. Whether you are shipping a consignment of gold bullion or a capesize load of iron ore, Bureau Veritas can help safeguard your interests by providing independent inspection and testing services.

Working from the world’s major ports, mining and refining locations, we aim to minimise commercial risk by quickly and accurately determining the physical properties of materials. We also design, install and operate mechanical sampling systems.
