Hold Condition Inspection, Hold Sealing

Buyers or sellers can order a US Marine Survey (USMS) inspection of the hold prior to loading. This gives both parties the confidence that the cargo will not be contaminated by material already in the hold, or affected in any way by vessel deficiencies. Our inspectors photograph, document, and report on any abnormalities they encounter. After completing the assessment, we provide an internationally recognized certificate of inspection.

Hold Inspections
US Marine Survey (USMS)  inspector verifies that the ship’s hold is ready to receive your cargo. Our hold inspections consider a number of factors that may affect the quality of your cargo. Our capable and experienced inspectors:
- Ensure that the hold is free of rust or paint chips that could contaminate or discolor your cargo
- Provide assurance that the hold is free of previous cargo remnants, including inaccessible areas
- Look for evidence of wooden partitions or dunnage that may react with cargo and ignite
- Examine the ship’s log for evidence of previous cargo containing materials that may put your cargo at risk
- Pay special attention to previous cargos including seed or grain that may lead to consequences due to quarantine requirements
- Check for any signs of moisture or previous water damage in the hold or bilge.
