SHOP INSPECTION AND INDUSTRIAL PROCUREMENT SERVICES
Increasingly complex global supply chains pose challenges for organisations when ensuring quality throughout industrial supply chains. Factors such as increased distances and frequent sub-contract agreements are making it harder to check quality standards, but it remains vitally important in order to maintain the cost, conformity and safety of assets through procurement services including 2nd party and 3rd party inspections.
OUR INDUSTRIAL PROCUREMENT SERVICES
Without undertaking the necessary checks, you could be left exposed to the risk of poor quality, unsafe or non-compliant equipment. Bureau Veritas supports owners, operators and purchasers of industrial assets and equipment with trusted 2nd party and 3rd party inspections, as part of a wide range of quality surveillance services delivered worldwide by our experienced, global team of inspection engineers.
We can help ensure that your purchased equipment both meets international, and national standards and/or specific standards and specifications defined in the purchase order/contract.
WHY ARE SHOP INSPECTION SERVICES IMPORTANT?
Many organisations do not have the in-house expertise or resources to undertake vendor inspections at global manufacturing sites. Others may have in-house capabilities but complex challenges and soaring travel costs can lead to backlogs if inspections are waived or delayed.
However, if you are purchasing equipment or materials and it does not meet expected standards, it will have a significant impact on your operations. Quality ‘fails’ can compromise the safety, functionality and longevity of assets and facilities, they can be costly to address and will likely hamper project schedules.
- Verify quality assurance and quality control from suppliers to protect your investment
- Reduce quality risks and safety risks from supply chain partners
- Reduce the risk of delays on project schedules
- Gain independent assurance and enhanced insight on supply chain operations from a trusted inspection partner
