MSK’s volume of business for coal inspection, in Australia, has been rising steadily. Ever since the recent impropriety issue that caused a storm in the Australian Third-party Inspection scenario, a few TICs have seen a significant fall in business in Australia and a certain amount of anxiety has crept into the buyer’s minds regarding the sanctity of the certificates. This has put them on their guard, and many have started including their own trusted assayers to witness the complete procedure on their behalf. With prices fluctuating unpredictably, both the buying and selling community are left open to market elements. Given these circumstances, one less surprise element in the mix is also a great relief. Mitra PTS Pty Ltd. has so far been able to reduce the anxiety of quite a few buyers and hope to be able to provide a safe platform for all involved in the coal business.
