Before we start a process of importing and exporting, it is necessary to meet all the requirements, one of them it’s a data sheet. You might have heard it at least onece, however, in foreign trade there are some particularities that you must know. Throughout this entry, we will define what a data sheet is and its importance in imports and exports.
A datasheet is a document, printed or electronic that provides details about a product, like a computer, computer component, or software program. The datasheet includes information that helps in making a buying decision about a product by providing technical specifications about the product.
At the commercial level, it is the tool used by the importer or exporter to inform, in a standardized and simple way, the technical characteristics of their product. At the logistics level, it provides relevant information to service providers for transportation.
Its objective is to identify the product as completely, but simply, as possible for all parties involved. The information should not be redundant or contain unnecessary elements. In addition, it should be elaborated according to the target market, or the market to which it is intended to attract.
It is important to remember that the technical data sheet is a document that is constantly being updated. That is, it will not always be the same. Its content will change as new information becomes available.
