Traceable assurance for safety-critical materials

Request a quote

Evolving Supply Chains and ESG concerns add to the existing risk of material provenance. Some Regulations, such as EU directives, require that the materials used meet defined chemical and mechanical properties. We can help you ensure that the materials you use meet your needs including the requirements of the European standard EN 10204:2004 Type 3.2.

We offer independent assurance of the material, which also includes "intent-of" Type 3.2 certification. Our three-step inspection process delivers bespoke examination and testing solutions tailored to the needs of your business, ensuring materials are traceable and verified for use.
