In the rare event that an overseas Commercial Service office cannot deliver the IPS report within 30 days, that office will inform the client of the reason for the delay and the proposed new date for delivery of the IPS report.

Occasionally, overseas firms contacted may not be interested in the U.S. company's offer. In these cases, the Commercial Service office conducting the IPS will return a "negative" IPS report. This report will include information on the marketability of the client's product or service, such as regulatory, trade, competitor and/or other factors that may prohibit or limit sales prospects in the relevant market.
