With the development of the modern market of goods, equipment and machinery, whole methodological complexes begin to emerge to determine the real market value of a product. Economic relations that arise in the process of acquisition and use of such things are governed by many regulations, so the emergence of civil disputes - a fairly common practice. To address such situations, there is a commodity examination, which is usually appointed in the following cases:

  • the occurrence of a dispute between the seller and the buyer;
  • the need to fulfill a monetary obligation to the creditor;
  • the need to compensate for damages caused by illegal actions of persons.


The objects of commodity examination are units of food or non-food products, as well as any material items that contain information about the commodity origin of the object of study: accompanying documentation, technical descriptions and recommendations for the use, storage and movement of products. Objects that were already in use, obsolete and even parts of the product are also subject to commodity examination.

Typical issues addressed by the commodity expertise "Determination of the value of machinery, equipment, raw materials and consumer goods":

  1. What is the market value (name of the object) as of the valuation date (indicate the date on which its value is determined)?
  2. What is the market value of the new (name of the object), which was not in use and was in a new condition at the time of the offense, as of the date of assessment (indicate the date on which its value is determined)?
  3. What is the market value (name of the object) made of (name of the metal approx. - base) mass… kg, as scrap ferrous (non-ferrous) metal as of the valuation date (indicate the date on which its value is determined)?
  4. What is the residual value of jewelry (product name) that has inserts (no inserts) (if any, provide information about them: name, weight, color, purity, cut, value), made of gold (silver, platinum) 585 ( 375, 750, 925, 950…) samples, weight without inserts… grams as of the date of assessment (indicate the date on which its value is determined)?
  5. What is the residual value (name of the object) made of gold (silver, platinum) 585 (375, 750, 925, 950…) of the sample, the mass of which without inserts (if any) is… grams as scrap precious metals at purchase prices Of the National Bank of Ukraine for precious metals in scrap as of the valuation date (indicate the date on which its value is determined)?

Why is it necessary to assess the value of goods, equipment and machinery?

Goods and equipment belong to the fixed assets of any enterprise and are intended for the production of various products. The modern market is represented by both new and old equipment, which has its value. There are various legal situations, ranging from moving them across the customs border, obtaining loans, collateral, bankruptcy of the company, when you need to set a real price for them. To do this, the cost of equipment and machinery is estimated. This is a kind of commodity examination.

Also, various goods are the end product of any production and have generic features. In civil law, goods are things. They are used to meet the needs of both individuals and legal entities, and have their value. Over time, the price of them changes, and this is due to various factors. Goods are also objects of various obligatory legal relations and can move across the border, act as collateral, and be objects for repayment of various debt obligations arising between different economic entities. All this is impossible without an assessment of equipment and goods. Such assessment will be conducted in accordance with the most modern methods by highly qualified appraisers and experts of our institution.

Experts of our Center have the appropriate qualifications and modern methodological basis for such research. The conclusion of the examination or research can be used not only in litigation, but also in various government and financial institutions.

* The body (person) that appointed the expertise (involved the expert) must ensure the possibility of inspection of the object and appropriate safe conditions (lighting, free access, the possibility of inspection of the object from different sides, etc.).

* The above-mentioned expert specialty solves other issues related to establishing the value by agreement, but before appointing an examination or research, be sure to consult (free of charge) with an expert (specialist) in the field of commodity research of our Center for Forensic Science.
