International Company Profile

To assist U.S. companies to enter international business relationships with confidence, the International Company Profile (ICP) helps U.S. companies evaluate potential business partners by providing a detailed report on overseas companies which have been personally visited by a Commercial Specialist or Commercial Officer. Through the service, clients can request answers to detailed questions about overseas companies on a variety of issues and receive expert advice from our commercial specialists about the relative strength of the firm in its market and its reliability, among other things. Upon request, detailed questions will be asked of the overseas companies, beyond those in the standard questionnaire. If additional questions are required, or if a deadline of less than 10 business days is necessary, an additional fee will be charged.
