Inspection Services along your Global Supply Chain

Vendor Inspection

Supporting worldwide projects for example in the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, energy, pulp and paper industries at a global scale, our comprehensive vendor inspection services include on-site examinations, vendor qualification assessments and expediting services. DEKRA inspectors with extensive field experience and regulatory knowledge work to objectively and transparently verify supplier capability claims and quality norms. We help you confirm that partners throughout your supply chain are authentic, effective and worthy of your trust. Inspectors are selected according to your particular needs in order to ensure your supply chain partners deliver goods and services in line with your requirements and standards.

Our 2nd party independent inspections performed at a supplier site cover all kinds of new-build mechanical, rotating, electrical and instrumentation equipment to verify that they have been manufactured in accordance with your specifications as well as regulatory requirements.

Vendor qualification assessments are systematically conducted to determine whether an individual supplier retains a documented quality system built on effective processes and provable results. After completing a full assessment, DEKRA inspectors skilled in quality management strategies and systems, as well as relevant regulatory guidelines can ascertain whether a supplier is able to achieve your contractual quality requirements.

Expediting capabilities also play an important role when choosing strong supply chain partners. We perform a thorough investigation of the supplier’s manufacturing progress to determine whether the supplier meets your expectations in regard to quality and conformity standards as well as appropriate packaging and timely delivery.
