IMTA as a body have for many years been proud to support Surveyors who have sought to be Registered as “IMTA Registered Surveyors”. Each Surveyor is required to make an application to the IMTA Board. Only Surveyors who are proposed to IMTA Board and approved by that body as being known to IMTA for their stated expertise can be accepted as an IMTA Registered Surveyor.

Clients that Surveyors enter into contracts with can include Traders, Wholesalers, Manufacturers, Producers, Insurers, P&I Clubs, Hauliers Liability Insurers, Cargo Insurers. The expertise they provide ranges considerably from inspections of product to assist in implementing quality standards such as HACCP, BRC accreditation through to Legal Expert witness guidance.
Each surveyor may have slightly different skills and points of differentiation, please see the Surveyors List and Profiles.
Surveyors are available to allow Members, Associate Members and others to utilise their service should they require.

By providing the details of each surveyor IMTA are not promoting or guaranteeing the skills of specific surveyors and cannot be held responsible for any contract entered into between the Surveyor and his client.
