WHY IS CODE COMPLIANCE SERVICES AND SHOP APPROVALS IMPORTANT?

Globalisation has led to an increase of cross border sourcing, focus on specialisation, improvement in manufacturing standards and quality of products. More and more sourcing are happening globally, and international code compliances and shop approvals bring in uniformity among suppliers and potential suppliers. End customer, Buyer/EPC and supplier are based at different locations and time zones, and their work cultures are also different. Today, end customers expect high standard of technology and quality products to be produced in lesser time, at optimum cost. Project construction cost and duration are also reducing while safety and regulatory requirements are increasing consistently. This complicates the risks faced by the buyer. It is important for the buyer to ensure that quality of goods they receive are consistent with specifications and evaluate suppliers with a set of common benchmarks and standards.
