Vendor Inspection, sometimes referred to as Source Inspection or Third Party Inspection, covers inspection activities performed at manufacturer’s works of all types of mechanical, electrical, electronic, and instrumentation equipment that are purchased by clients within the Petrochemical, Oil & Gas, Pharmaceutical and Mining Industries.
With today's technology and communications the need for companies to respond and react quickly and efficiently to quality control requirements for procured products is increasingly important.
The level of Vendor Inspection services provided is intrinsically linked to the equipment involved, the Purchase Order requirements and the technical specifications / standards (national and international) applicable to the equipment. Normally the level of inspection is reviewed with the client to ensure that both parties fully understand what is expected of the other.
Should the client require only one or two visits, for example to conduct final inspection or to witness a test on a specific piece of kit, the scope of inspection is easily and clearly defined. When the scope of inspection is more detailed the manufacturer normally draws up a Quality Control Plan or Inspection and Test Plan on which the scope of inspection for all parties is agreed and the client then approves this document.
For a sizeable skid package or critical piece of equipment a Pre Production or Pre Inspection Meeting is held during which all parties discuss the scope of inspection, locations for inspection, communication channels and agree the proposed mark up of the Quality Control Plan.
