Reducing risk from industrial supply purchases.
In most industrial sectors (such as chemical, automotive, metallurgical, or oil & gas), large construction projects involve the purchase of a vast number of items supplied by many different manufacturers. Quality and safety are key for these projects. So it is of vital importance to check the quality of every single item, no matter how small. These items range from raw material to finished products. As some indication of the diversity of items concerned, they can include pipes and tubes, equipment ranging from valves and faucets to boilers and motors, engines for anything from lifting equipment to elevators, electrical and electronic devices. Any purchase carries embedded risk. If a part is faulty, but the fault is not detected, the risk of something going wrong becomes embedded within the new asset.
What is Shop Inspection?
Shop Inspection involves inspecting items at their place of manufacture before delivery. This is the most convenient and cost-effective way to determine whether a product, service, process, piece of equipment or installation complies with expressed needs, customer expectations, applicable regulations or other specific requirements. Shop inspection can include design review, review of material certificates, visual inspection, various Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), attendance, supervision or performance of mechanical or functional tests.
What are the key benefits?

- Confidence to use supplied items thanks to detailed reports and certificates;
- Cost-effective way to verify Quality Assurance/Quality Control organization of suppliers;
