Testing and certifying industry-specific technologies requires specialist knowledge, experience and testing equipment, as well as official authorization. Armed with all of the above, Control Union Testing & Inspection has over the years gained a reputation as a focussed, reliable partner in the inspection, testing and certification of all manner of technology, from hoisting tools to helicopter refuelling systems to (tank) containers, relief valves and more.
Our facilities, staff and experience allow us to handle all equipment either in house or, if preferred, on site. In our fields of expertise, we are the certifying authority, or are authorized to issue safety certificates jointly with the relevant surveying organization. Our long-standing record of friendly and constructive co-operation with all supervisory bodies is conducive to smooth, swift procedures.
In addition, we carry out maintenance and repairs, supply parts and equipment, offer procurement support and instruct your staff in safe working methods. Our business practices are harmonized with the ISO 9001 standards series and our certification procedures comply with all current national and international regulations and can be attuned to company-specific standards.
Certification Information Quality System
Certificates and inspection reports are issued to clients online under password protection. In addition, we operate a unique data base system called C.I.Q.S. (Certification Information Quality System). C.I.Q.S. generates a current overview of equipment that needs to be re-certified within the time frame of a long lasting project.
