Full Outturn Quality (FOQ)

SGS provides a full outturn quality (FOQ) guarantee service that covers differences in quality detected between the loading and discharge of a cargo.

Outturn quality guarantees ensure that the quality of your transported goods remains within determined contractual parameters at discharge. The result is twofold. Firstly, our FOQ ensures that the variables inherent to sampling and testing methods are avoided. Secondly, the FOQ means that we assume responsibility for quality discrepancies between loading and discharge under specific agreed terms.

In both ways, our quality guarantee minimizes your trade risks and eliminates your exposure to claims and financial losses.

Other guarantee services:

  • Comprehensive Cover
  • Full Outturn Guarantee (FOG)
  • Rejection Guarantee
  • Seller’s Interest / Contingency Insurance

To find out about these services – and learn how our FOQ covers you for quality discrepancies detected between loading and discharge – contact SGS now.
