Radiation Residue: How Can It Affect Your Shipments and What Can You Do About It?
In response to the recent nuclear crisis in Japan, authorities in some countries have ordered more stringent border controls and/or laboratory tests for products coming from Japan and surrounding Asian countries, in order to prevent contamination and detect levels of radiation.
What Is Your Risk?
Cargo which has detected levels of radiological contamination will be returned. This will cause the delay of products to market, incur shipping costs, and present a serious loss of business opportunities.
How Can SGS Help?
To avoid shipment detention or return for radiological contamination, SGS can help by conducting a “Radiation Residue Scan Service”. This service can be combined with final random inspection or can be conducted on samples collected during inspection. Contact us for more information.
