    3.  If the importer does not have a pre shipment inspection china certificate, the customs of the importing country may fine him or her 1-2 times the FOB value of the goods, or they may order the goods to be returned to the sender


    Generally speaking, a single batch of export products with a value greater than US $2000 must be inspected prior to shipment, and the goods shipped in full containers must frequently be supervised by the inspection agency at the same time as the goods shipped in part containers. The specific pre-shipment inspection policies of different countries are distinct from one another, as well.

    2. If the goods' point of origin and point of destination are in different regions, it is important to note where the goods are loaded into the container. The origin inspection and quarantine bureau must first be contacted in order to obtain the certificate for certificate replacement of outbound goods if the goods are transported to a port and then loaded into the container. The application will be submitted to the port inspection and quarantine bureau, which will then issue the pre-shipment inspection certificate.
