INDUSTRIAL PRODUCT CERTIFICATION
Exploration and Production (EPC) contractors count on Bureau Veritas to work hand-in-hand with them throughout the lifecycle to mitigate risks and costs.
Oil & Gas operators face numerous risks during the project phase, ranging from employee and contractor safety to asset damage and interruptions to production.
Owners need help in managing those risks. A focus on safety, compliance and integrity is of utmost importance, as businesses aim to avoid accidents, non-conformities, and unplanned delays in the project delivery.
HOW WE SUPPORT YOU
We proudly partner with major EPC contractors, bringing them added value both onshore and offshore, with a uniquely strong presence throughout the project phase of an asset.
We provide solutions from pre-project through design and construction to certification.
- ISO 3834 Certification of welding activities
The service proposed by Bureau Veritas consists of assessment and certification of quality requirement of welding manufacturer.
- EN1090 Certification of welding activities
Manufacturers of steel and aluminum structures must comply with the standard for CE marking: EN 1090-1, design of steel and aluminum structures. This means that companies producing and selling steel and aluminum structures must have implemented a quality management system that ensures and documents that the company meets the specific standards.
In addition to being approved for CE marking, the companies' quality management system (FPC system) must comply with the requirements of the ISO 3834 certification. At the same time, it is an advantage that it meets the requirements of an ISO 9001 certification.
- CE Marking
By affixing the CE marking, the manufacturer, or its representative, or the importer assures that the item meets all the essential requirements of all applicable EU directives. As a Worldwide Authorized Independent Agency, Bureau Veritas offers conformity assistance with: Construction Products, Containers, Cranes, Electrical Products and Components, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Lifts, Marine Equipment, Materials, Mechanical Products, Process Machines, Pressure equipment, etc.
- Material Certification 3.2
EN 10204 is a globally-accepted standard with requirements for quality in supplied engineering materials. The majority of material manufactured under EN 10204 is “Type 3.1,” but there is a more rigorous set of requirements known as “Type 3.2” which requires outside verification all the way back to the melting processes. With material often made years in advance of its final use, real Type 3.2 certification can be difficult to manage in normal supply chains.
- Inspections and audits for boilers and pressure vessels (ASME)
In most countries, manufacturers of boilers and pressure vessels must comply with very strict regulations and codes in order to market their equipment. This is their “license to operate”. In Europe, USA, India and many other countries, boilers and pressure vessels must comply with the ASME code
- Inspections and audits for boilers and pressure vessels (PED)
All pressure equipment is volatile and may be misused. The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) complies with designs to recognize this risk and prevent further issues from occurring.
