Shop Inspection


It is of vital importance to check the quality of every single item, no matter how small. These components range from raw materials to finished products. As some indication of the diversity of items concerned, they can include girders, tubs, 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. If a part is substandard and the fault is not detected, the risk 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, Non Destructive Testing (NDT), attendance, supervision or performance of mechanical or functional tests.

What are the key benefits?

  • Risks linked to Quality and safety problems with supplies can be avoided;
  • Independent assessments provide reassurance;
  • Detailed reports and certificates secures confidence in using supplied items;
  • Services are a cost effective solution to verifying the Quality Assurance/Quality Control organizations of suppliers.
