Introduction to Remote Inspection

We understand that organization''s are facing many challenges due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We want to let you know that we’re here to help you minimize any potential disruption to your organization.

Our remote inspections are designed to provide you with the same level of technical expertise and insight in a safe, flexible and efficient way. The ability to stream high-quality data with smart cameras, mobile technology or drones, means that real-time collaboration is now possible - wherever and whenever you need us.

Anytime. Anywhere. Remote Assurance from Lloyd's Register

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 organization. Your stakeholders can co-witness and interact during our inspection while 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.

Our remote inspections are underpinned with our easy-to-use app, LR Remote, which is downloadable free of charge from Google Play or the App Store. It can easily be installed across standard mobile devices and only needs internet connectivity either via WiFi or your local network provider (3/4G).

We can provide accredited remote inspections against the following:

ASME Inspection / Joint Reviews


In countries where travel restriction is in place, ASME and NB are accepting requests for cancellations from manufacturers/repair organizations in view of the COVID-19 situation. Extensions are equally granted. Businesses need to approach ASME/NB and not LR.


Our remote inspections comply with the requirements of relevant accreditation bodies, giving you confidence in our ability to provide expert guidance and support.

The remote inspection program is working very well for Continental Disc allowing us to be more flexible.
