I have had a strange request from one of our overseas customers. They would like delivered with their equipment a Certificate of Quality (no problem I will use our standard COC and name it Quality) as well as a Certificate of Quantity (??).

Has anyone ever heard of a Certificate of Quantity??? If so please provide information as what this should include, other than the obvious quantity of one :) and what purpose such a certificate may serve.

Customs and Declarations... GRRR!!

Yep, I've seen that before. Just another cog in the Customs and Importation machine. I have seen entire containers of product rejected and returned from CHINA because the counts shown on the Bill of Lading did not match the physical count. This Certificate of Quantity is just another piece of paperwork for them to double check against. It may also serve to speed things along as it can often be used to "pre-clear" customs in many countries.

I tried Googling on "Certificate of Quantity" and got a lot of hits, but could not locate an example of one. Anyone else have information on this?

Sorry, didn't quite answer the question did I?:eek:

Best description is : a clean, official copy of the Bill of Lading.

Best approach : ask your customer to provide an example from some other shipment. The format and contents change depending on what country and what type of material you are shipping. It is also dependant on what they actually intend to use it for.
