Geneva, 15 October, 2013
On September 29, 2013, Cotecna, one of the world’s leading inspection, testing and certification companies, was awarded, as the leading member of the consortium “Cotecna Inspection S.A. – Cotecna Sénégal SARL – Modelsis SARL”, a new mandate by the Directorate General of Senegal Customs.
This new mandate involves the continuation of activities related to the existing Import Verification Program, and the development of transit monitoring and scanner services, as well as new services optimizing data integration.
This success, which consolidates the leading position of Cotecna in West Africa, confirms the quality of work delivered by our teams in Senegal where Cotecna has provided Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) services since 2001. Mobile scanners were first introduced to the PSI programme in 2003 in association with a computerized risk management system and additional scanners were brought into the programme in 2010. E-tracking for transit monitoring was introduced in 2010 contributing further to Customs modernization and increase of revenue for Senegal.
