What are the benefits of remote inspection?

Flexible and efficient  

Our remote inspection offers you a flexible and efficient solution that reduces your planning and preparation time.

Uncompromised quality and expertise

Our remote inspection service uses technology to deliver the same level of technical expertise and insight that you are accustomed to.


Remote inspection is an environmentally responsible solution, saving on travel and complex global logistics and greatly reducing the carbon footprint of the inspection.

Improved safety  

Remote inspections eliminate the need to send workers to hazardous sites and locations, thereby mitigating risk to your people without compromising the integrity of the inspection.

How does it work?

Step 1: Planning

We take time to understand the full scope of the inspection, creating a plan that is tailored to your organisation and addresses your operational needs.

Step 2: Test

If necessary, we will conduct a test with you before the inspection, to avoid any potential issues and to ensure the smooth delivery of your inspection on the day. 

Step 3: Remote inspection

We conduct the inspection as planned which can be co-witnessed and participated by as many stakeholders as needed, using video conferencing and file and screen sharing technologies.

Step 4: After the remote inspection

An in-depth e-report is produced, detailing the inspection findings. If a certificate of approval is to be issued, this will be proceeded by a standard technical review.

Step 5: Follow-up

In the event of any nonconformities being raised, wherever possible we will carry out a remote review of corrective and preventive action.

What technology does LRQA use?

Our inspectors are trained on several platforms, including Microsoft Teams and our own LRQA Remote app, which we offer for inspections that include a higher degree of complexity. We are flexible with the tools we use and will work with you to choose the right application for your remote inspection whilst maintaining the security and confidentiality of the data and information shared with us.

LRQA Remote, can be downloaded from Google Play or the App Store. It is purpose-built, the app’s system and controls are certified to ISO 27001 making it secure and is designed to work effectively, even when the internet bandwidth is poor, making it truly reliable.

It has a host of features that contribute to an intuitive and effective inspection experience:

  • Collaborate with up to four parties on the same live stream
  • Capture and share video, audio and images with technical experts
  • Location coordinates can be used as evidence of the physical location of inspection
The remote inspection program is working very well for Continental Disc allowing us to be more flexible.
