SGS is an abbreviation of Societe Generale de Surveillance S.A., translated as "Universal Public Notary."
SGS customs operations refer to the agreement between the importing country's government or the government's authorized customs authority to sign an agreement with SGS. SGS checks the goods before shipment in the country where the goods are exported, the approved duty-paid price, or the settlement price, and the tax classification (in import). On the premise of the implementation of the HS system in the country), the enforcement of import control regulations (such as whether an import license has been applied in advance, etc.), etc., is the entry inspection operation performed by the customs of the importing country after the arrival of the goods in the importing country. After confirming the truth and reasonableness, a notarization report is issued, which is the "Clean Report of Finding" (CRF). As a document that must be submitted to the customs for customs declaration after importation, the customs of the importing country shall either simplify or dispense with multiple customs clearance procedures and release the product directly after taxation. This will not only speed up inspection and release (generally no re-inspection), but will also be closely monitored. .
Second, SGS Customs operations include the following:

One is to ensure that the carried goods are inspected (examined) by SGS, and the other is to ensure that the goods under the contract are completely and firmly loaded on the designated transport ships. The container cargo requirements are monitored for packing operations and sealing.
3. Check the price. That is to review the transaction price, which is the most important part of the implementation of CISS, and it is also one of the reasons for attracting many countries. The purpose is to prevent importers from overstatement at low prices, avoid capital outflows, or prevent high prices and understatement, and evade tariffs.
4. Customs tariffs are categorized. Check whether the importer's taxation number in the import permit is in conformity with the current customs regulations of the country, or provide a reasonable tax code and tax rate based on the physical items seen at the time of inspection to ensure full collection of customs duties and customs statistics. Accuracy.
5. Check whether the imported goods are in conformity with the importing country's foreign trade and customs laws and regulations, and whether the import licensing procedures are complete and legal, so as to effectively prevent the illegal import of unlicensed arrivals, prohibited goods, and controlled goods.
