Inspection services for Insurance Brokers

Help your clients achieve compliance

Insurance brokers face a number of challenges when offering engineering inspection services to clients. Keeping up with the latest regulations across a wide range of engineering and electrical equipment can be complex, particularly when taking into account the examination frequency of different inspection and testing regimes.

It pays for brokers to find an effective, value-adding solution to engineering inspection services for clients. Failure to comply with the required legislation risks potential prosecution for the client and increases the risk to operation. The implementation of a robust engineering inspection program is a good way to demonstrate best practice and a vital part of any risk management programme too. 

Bureau Veritas builds lasting partnerships to offer a trusted solution

We support insurance brokers in providing a first class inspection service, utilising local teams of multidisciplined Engineer Surveyors at competitive rates.


Working with a third-party specialist such as Bureau Veritas, brokers can separate insurance from inspection and give their clients the best possible risk management solution.

Comprehensive inspection programmes, delivered in line with required frequencies, can help minimise downtime, prevent breakdowns and extend equipment life. All whilst ensuring assets remain safe and compliant.
