Quality Control and Verification

As clients and contractors we are obliged to vet and monitor our suppliers to ensure that their equipment or goods have been manufactured in accordance with the relevant specifications. It's a key part of project quality control. It can stop valuable delays later down the line, reduce pipeline repair costs and ensure that all the right paperwork is in place from the very start. 

Here at QEM Solutions we work to any number of criteria set by the client, other relevant international specifications or quality system requirements as specified by the designers. We leave no stone unturned - so to speak.

Our inspections and audits are always carried out by suitably qualified and competent team members.
