KSO forwards the VO to Baltic Control
Baltic Control forwards to the exporter RFI (Request for Information) along with Exporter’s Written Statement (EWS), Introduction Letter and Fees.
Exporter reverts to Baltic Control with RFI, Pro-forma invoice, and preliminary packing list along with any necessary information needed for proceeding with the physical inspection.
5 working days notice is required to schedule/coordinate an inspection accordingly.
Physical Inspection completed
Exporter submits Final Shipping Documents consisting of signed: Final Invoice (one per RFI), Packing List (one per RFI), and EWS (one per RFI) and Bill of Lading ( is not required but optional) to Baltic Control.
Baltic Control is to verify Final Shipping Documents and Physical Inspection Results and submit a report through a data base to KSO. LS DRAFT is treated as our internal report and it is KSO Sucofindo, which issues the LAPORAN SURVEYOR (LS) for Customs purposes based on report provided by Baltic Control. Neither the exporter nor the importer needs to receive the copy of LS DRAFT, as this document cannot be used for any other purposes by any other parties but KSO.
KSO releases Customs documents through system to importer for customs clearance.

If exporter agrees to pay for certificate covering quality and quantity in addition to the KSO inspections requirement, BALTIC CONTROL will provide exporter with the necessary certificates.
