UNISAME seeks PSQCA NOC for enlisted firms

STAFF REPORT KHI:  The Union of Small and Medium Enterprises (UNISAME) has urged the Ministry of Commerce and Ministry of Science and Technology to consider allowing all pre-shipment accredited agencies listed with the Pakistan Standard Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) to issue no objection certificates (NOC) on behalf of PSQCA as it will not be possible for PSQCA alone to manage import and export inspection of cargo single handedly.

“In lieu of the Trade Policy 2012 – 2015 decision to entrust PSQCA with the quality control responsibility it would be a sane decision to authorize all accredited agencies listed with PSQCA to share the work load,” said President UNISAME Zulfikar Thaver in a statement issued here.
