FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is the inspection going to slow down the production process?

    One might say that having a third party body controlling and inspecting the production process could slow down the production chain. On the contrary, having our team full time in the plant makes them part of the team and they are able to anticipate and identify the problem before they become big issues.

  • Will Third Party Inspection increase the project’s cost?

    Considering the globalization of manufacturing, the multiplicity of suppliers worldwide and the integrator’s job to perform according to various standards, TPI will ensure the project runs smoothly. By detecting and correcting systemic or spots defects, Bureau Veritas can ensure that the manufacturing plan will be adhered to.

  • Why should I use a third party?

    You don’t need to have people of your team mobilized full time in the supplier’s factory. Also with experts coming from the country of production we ensure better communication and faster problem resolving process.
