improve import processes

Bureau Veritas helps governments to provide effective services and protect their citizens.



As imports play a major role in most economies, protecting citizens from importing poor quality products is one of the fundamental roles of governments. In the context of increasing globalization, governments are also seeking to demonstrate that their countries meet the conditions required to trade effectively and that they provide transparency of processes for companies and citizens with rapid customs clearance of imports.


Bureau Veritas works with governments to control imports into their countries and protect citizens. We have developed a range of digital services to help them become more efficient.

Protecting local populations
Bureau Veritas is accredited by a number of countries to perform conformity checks, assess goods at the point of export and issue certificates of conformity to exporters with the objective of ensuring that non-compliant goods do not enter a country.

Efficient customs clearance
Bureau Veritas is a leader in the one-stop-shop concessions sector. These innovative digital systems reduce customs clearance times and facilitate trade and transparency. They allow traders to provide a single body with all the information necessary to meet all regulatory import or export requirements.

Improve tax collection
The use of X-ray scanners to inspect imports allows countries to verify that the products and quantities imported correspond to customs declarations. Mandated by countries, we install and operate scanners to help them increase their tax revenues and prevent illegal imports.
