Complex supply chains need to be managed in a way that minimizes risk, reduces cost and delay, improves safety and quality, and ensures compliance with local and international standards.
All these considerations make quality vendor inspection services essential.
We provide a complete solution, covering every aspect of supply chain management. Our global network of competent, qualified experts is strategically located to serve the world’s major industrial suppliers.
From one-day visits to long-term residencies, our technical specialists are on hand to carry out inspection and verification services whenever and wherever needed. Our key areas of expertise include the inspection of material, machinery, and manufactured items, for example vessels, rotating equipment, valves, fittings, piping, and other components. This is complemented by process specific expertise in disciplines such as manufacturing, welding and fabrication, instrumentation and control systems, coatings, and non-destructive testing.
Our inspectors will detect problems earlier in the supply process, saving re-work and replacement costs as well as ensuring that product or plant is delivered on time. We are provider of technical inspection services for the global energy market, a reputation built on our experience providing vendor inspection services for some of the largest and most technical projects.

Expediting is a real-time task, which often demands pro-active responses to situations as they occur. In many cases it is impossible to be on-site with every supplier around the world, so there is a need for trusted local expeditors with in-depth knowledge of procurement, production, and delivery processes.
Large-scale projects and the supply of critical goods and equipment can involve complex international supply chains, with items procured from suppliers in multiple countries. Late delivery from any onesupplier can have an impact on the whole chain, preventing projects from being completed on time and on budget. Expediting means taking any action necessary to ensure that deliveries are made on time and to specification.

We believe that people are essential.
Companies want to know, before placing an order, that their chosen manufacturer has the necessary infrastructure, systems, processes, and capabilities to fulfil it.
They also need to ensure that local and international standards of quality and safety are consistently maintained across all their international vendors, and throughout the manufacturing and delivery process.
From multi-national companies with complex international supply chains to smaller businesses facing increasing manufacturing costs, more companies are looking to lower-cost vendors in countries with less developed quality, sourcing, manufacturing, and delivery processes.
This requires companies to maintain consistent, acceptable standards while working with a range of vendors across a variety of territories.
We can help you gain a complete understanding of vendor capabilities through a systematic and independent vendor assessment.
Our reliable, accredited auditors carry out internal audits, allowing companies and their vendors to meet quality standards without the cost of retaining an internal auditor on staff.
While the criteria are tailored to suit our clients’ needs, audits typically focus on a vendor’s systems, practices and capabilities.
Audits may include pre-contract assessment and compliance testing to international standards, for example quality (ISO 9001) health and safety (ISO 18001) environmental management (ISO 14001). We also provide guidance for corrective and actions considering an audit’s findings and follow-up assessments to confirm the effective implementation of those actions.
We also provide Approved Vendor Lists audits, allowing our clients to maintain a current list of approved suppliers in preparation for future projects.

Every project is distinct, and their safe, successful completion demands input from a diverse range of disciplines. Projects can also be geographically diverse with complex international supply chains. This diversity makes an integrated approach to project management both challenging and essential.
