Peas inspection is a process of quality control of goods at different stages of logistic chain, which minimizes major trade risks related to the likelihood of cargo delivered or received not according to agreed specification, not being supplied in agreed quantity or incomplete set of accompanying documents agreed between parties for peas export/import operations is issued and received.
CISS GROUP provides peas inspection services to large agribusinesses and international trading companies in intermediate storage warehouses, elevators, factories or ports around the world.
The distinctiveness of peas inspection is that depending on the purpose - as well as the color of the seeds - peas are subdivided into various classes and subclasses. Food peas is classified under two subclasses: yellow and green; while fodder peas are divided in many subclasses. Food peas of the 1st and 2nd subclass are supplied to the trade network in accordance with the state standard; - it must be sorted and depending on the size, divided into three classes. Food peas of the 1st and 2nd subclass are usually supplied for processing into cereals. Delivery of peas belonging to a mixture of types or subclasses to groats factories is not allowed. It is also important to remember that peas should be handled very carefully and should not be transported over long distances, otherwise their quality can be significantly reduced as a result of damage.
GAFTA-accredited inspectors and laboratory technicians from CISS GROUP carry out peas inspection at any point of the supply chain.
The main stages of peas inspection:
Incoming/outgoing peas inspection.
It is carried out during delivery of peas to silos or to a port, or at releasing it from factory/silo warehouses. The CISS GROUP inspector will visually assess the condition of the premises for the suitability for cargo storage; will check the cargo itself so that it is dry, not mixed with other cargo, not damp or wet, free from pests, foreign matter, weeds, mold or foreign odors. If peas is delivered in bags, the inspector will inspect them for traces of soaking, and if agreed, will perform the selected bag opening for sampling purpose and further visual check of cargo quality.
Acceptance of cleanliness containers / holds of vessels before loading peas.
This is a visual inspection of containers and empty holds for their cleanliness and suitability for peas transportation. The inspector carefully examines their internal surfaces, checks the integrity and condition of locks, hinges and other fasteners on the container doors, rubber seals for container doors and hold covers.
Visual control of the loading process and sampling of peas.
During loading, the inspector controls the loading of peas, confirms the gross / net weight during re-weighing; in the case of loading peas into the holds - the initial, intermediate and final check of the weight of the loaded cargo by the draft survey method, controls the fumigation process; conducts a visual assessment of the quality of the cargo, takes samples in accordance with GAFTA sampling rules, forms composite samples. At the end of the loading, the inspector will seal the loaded containers or holds. He enters all the data into reports to which the client gets direct access. Note that the CISS GROUP loading inspection and sampling can be carried out around the clock on 24/7 basis.
Laboratory analyzes of peas quality.
We check the quality of peas exclusively in GAFTA accredited laboratories in accordance with the requirements of agreed per contract standards - being local or internationals. Usually for determination of peas quality the following standard parameters are used: color, smell, grain calibration, moisture content, protein, grain impurity, metal or other non organic impurities per 1 kg of peas, pest infestation, the presence of chaff and flour, weedy and moldy grains.
In addition to basic analyzes, laboratory tests are carried out for the presence of pesticides, mycotoxins, GMO, dioxins, heavy metals and radioactive elements in peas.
At the request of the client, during the loading process we also carry out express analyzes for each pre determined lot.
Photo and video report.
The inspector records each stage of the inspection with photos and videos. All such data contain the date and time of recorded stage of inspection. At the end of the peas inspection, CISS GROUP provides a detailed photo report of all stages of control and inspection.
Based on the results of the peas inspection the final certificate or reports are issued. The client can check the authenticity of the documents using a unique QR code, which is the "key" to the CISS GROUP website, where pdf versions of certificates are stored. Our certificates are protected with a digital cryptographic signature, which also guarantees their reliability and security.
Digitally signed certificates are often required by banks to verify the integrity of trading process when financing trade operations in the form of a letter of credit.Send request
