Applus+ works with you to achieve your quality needs in a speedy, professional and efficient manner. We provide experienced, local technical personnel from an extensive international network of qualified, competent and technically assessed inspectors strategically based in the world’s major industrial manufacturing areas, thus providing a comprehensive cost effective service to our clients.
Our field inspectors are familiar with a wide variety of Standards/Specifications and report forms as a result of our extensive international client base. All reports are technically reviewed for completeness and correctness by the local Applus+ office prior to client submission. However, as timeliness is crucial, we have our own in-house Key Performance Indicator targets, one of which involves the turn around, or submission time of reports.
