For break-bulk product, such as loose logs or timber that is loaded onto ships individually, an export inspection must be completed. In addition, a Post Inspection Product Security (PIPS) check may also be required. A PIPS check provides confidence that the consignment status is not compromised during the time between the initial inspection and the point of loading.
A PIPS check is a ‘mini’ inspection and is most commonly completed on the port, or at point of containerisation.
