Robin Pickup - Global Leader
A component stamp is far from an end result. It is ever more important to broaden traditional inspection views to best meet the needs of high-risk, asset-intensive industries. Our inspection services exist not just to provide approval marks, but to enhance the safety, reliability and sustainability of supply chains.
Danny Walker - Compliance services manager, Americas
Facilitating co-operation and collaboration
New department of Interior regulations instruct lessees and operators of federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf to adopt increased safety measures. Part of the requirements call for independent third-party certification covering major subsea equipment before use.
Peter Staton - UK Energy Business Manager
As good as our word
Manufacturing businesses succeed or fail on the quality of the service they provide, as well as the quality of their components and equipment. This is especially true in a tough financial climate. We can help our clients distinguish themselves by providing the best service levels.
K Swaminathan - Business Manager, India
Smart inspection: the advantages
Inspection checks that specifications will be met, but neglects the capabilities of the manufacturer or vendor. This can prove costly, given that equipment and components are at the heart of a plant. Smart inspections mitigate the risks at stage one by assessing suppliers' strengths and weaknesses.
Masahiko Yoshimura - Manufacturing Sector Leader, Asia
Built around your business
Stakeholders in the energy and transportation sectors have one role in common: being responsible for QHSE and risk management during the manufacturing process of high-integrity, high-value assets. They have a key question for us: "How can we make the best use of your resources to satisfy our requirements?"

Up to the job? Assessing novel designs
Putting an untried design into a complex operation inevitably brings its own set of pressures. The cost of a mistake, directly to a business and its reputation, is enormous. Take the oil and gas industry in frontier areas. What will happen when gas mixes with oil and sand particles in an inovative subsea multiphase compressor system?

Universal code; common challenges
In 2010, for the first time, there were more ASME Code certificate holders outside of North America than within the continent. Broad acceptance of the Code brings with it global manufacturing challenges.
