Commercial Inspections

Through our global network of inspectors, we are able to organise and carry out inspections in any city in Ecuador. Cotecna provides inspection services at the various stages of production and loading.

Faulty products are bad for business, as they usually mean dissatisfied customers, lost sales, operational disruption, reworks, withdrawal of products from the market, and even legal and safety problems.

Cotecna can increase confidence in the quality of the product by carrying out inspections during the early stages of the supply chain. We quickly report any discrepancy and help you during the action needed to resolve the problem.
