Managing Risk for the Hotel, Motel, Restaurant, and Guest Service Industries
Within the hospitality trade, quality assurance services are a critical factor in determining that products are safe and reliable prior to guest use and interaction. Hoteliers, restaurateurs, and suppliers need to be confident that products meet guest expectations along with the required safety, regulatory and government standards globally. Additionally, a company’s efforts towards being “green and ethical” are no longer options but a necessity to maintain brand image. New legislation, voluntary standards and guest needs are making companies more accountable for the impact of their products and business practices on the environment and society. As a result, owners and operators are moving towards a model to “verify” compliance to risk management initiatives, as opposed to full dependency on supplier relationships.
Bureau Veritas is positioned to provide global services to all segments of the hospitality industry in the areas of product testing, inspection, auditing, and social and sustainability services. We can help you to establish a customized program with your company, that can bridge the gap between owners, operators, purchasers and suppliers, as well as manage risk at all levels. Regulatory and quality drivers such as regional fire codes, industry requirements, longevity of a product’s lifecycle, and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (for the US market) are of particular concern for your business - and represent only a fraction of focus points illustrating due diligence. Bureau Veritas’ understanding of regulatory and quality requirements, along with our technical leadership and experience working with high-profile multinational companies, can provide you with solutions that will demonstrate best business practices and your commitment to quality products. What are the key benefits? • Enhanced risk management and brand protection • Verify that products and business practices are meeting or exceeding company expectations • Access to a global network strategically placed in key sourcing regions • Credible technical leadership and world class account management and customer service teams • Web-based solutions for customized reporting options and real-time access to order status and results
