2nd/3rd Party Shop Inspections
Most large oil and gas construction projects involve the purchase of a vast number of items supplied by various manufacturers from around the globe. If a part is substandard and the fault is not detected, the risk becomes embedded within the new asset. Therefore, quality and safety are critical to these projects. It is of vital importance to check the quality of all items – from raw materials to finished products, no matter how small.
Bureau Veritas’ shop inspection division conducts inspections of 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. Our inspectors are highly certified, including CWI (Certified Welding Inspector), ASNT NDT Technicians, API, and NACE certified. They have extensive experience evaluating the condition of materials manufactured in the fabrication shop.
Shop inspection services include:
- Design review
- Review of material certificates
- Visual inspections
- Non Destructive Testing (NDT)
- Supervision of mechanical or functional tests
