How does it work?

Enabling smarter, safer and more sustainable solutions, our remote inspections can be delivered in a variety of ways including:


Our technical expert will guide you through the process while you operate the equipment and we will ensure that you have everything you need for the inspection.


Our technical expert will live-stream the inspection directly to relevant parties within your organisation. Your own stakeholders can co-witness and interact during our inspection whilst keeping your travel costs to a minimum.

Whichever model of delivery you choose, the entire inspection can be documented via visual recording thereby delivering transparency. Pre-agreed data can also be sent to LR for review and analysis at a later stage for both client-operated and co-witnessed inspections.

Contact us to learn more about remote supply chain inspections.

Our inspectors are trained on a number of platforms, including Microsoft Teams and our own LR Remote app, which we offer for inspections that include a higher degree of complexity. We are flexible with the tools we use and will work with you to choose the right application for your remote inspection.

We can provide accredited remote inspections against the following:
