Supply chain assurance
Our three step approach
1. Help you identify and assess risk areas
2. Provide the necessary tools and expertise to help you to develop your own solutions and control procedures
3. Work with your suppliers, both globally and locally, to verify your solution
An approach that saves costs, increases brand loyalty while safeguarding shareholder value - and your reputation. At LRQA we call it Business Assurance.
A trusted 'Voice in the Industry'
