Exploring MEC surveys with LR


A Remote MEC Survey is an efficient, economical and ecological option to achieve certification with a reduced impact on your business while achieving the same levels of reassurance as an on-site survey.

It enables you to be flexible and independent from a surveyor’s travel arrangements and reduce the carbon footprint of your materials, equipment and component processes.


Having to deliver under pressure requires a lot of flexibility, which could be achieved through a remote survey.

Choosing our Remote MEC Survey option can reduce your waiting times and costs, and provides multiple options for running your processes more efficiently. 

Remote does not always mean completely remote. If you have a regular schedule of survey visits, hybrid survey options should be considered. Hybrid options include remote and direct elements with the efficiency of direct contact built around your business requirements.
