Discussion about Inspection 商检协商
A: There is another point which should be discussedand cleared up. That's the commodity inspection.How will the clause of inspection be stipulated inthe contract?
B: The goods under the contract will be inspectedby the Commodity Inspection Bureau, at the port ofloading before they are shipped and the certificate ofquality and quality/weight issued by the Bureau shall be regarded as final and binding uponparties.
A: Do you mean that you sell on shipped quality and quantity? But what about the case ofdisqualification or short weight on arrival?
B: I can assure you that is not likely to happen. Our goods must be up to export standardsbefore the inspection bureau releases them. And as you may know, the Commodity InspectionBureau enjoys international reputation for impartiality.
A: We have heard about the reputation of both CIB and your products and never doubt them.But what in case there is short weight or disqulification? Would you tell me whether the buyershave the right to reinspect the goods when goods arrive? Are we entitled to lodge claims?
B: Yes, of course. You have the right of reinspection. But for this particular item, we follow theinternational practice that the reinspection should be made within 7 days upon the arrival of thegoods and if any discrepancies are found you may lodge claims with us within 30 days.
A: Well, I suppose I'm clear about this point. Thank you for being patient with me.
B: Don't mention it. That's what I'm here for.
