This ensures smooth and correct delivery of your goods. With this service, TÜV Hessen helps banks and trading companies meet official regulations. We confirm the buyer’s specifications and check the volume and value of imported and exported goods. In doing so, we operate in accordance with WTO (World Trade Organization) rules.
