Buffalo is dedicated to maintaining the highest standard in both quality, health and safety performance in the services that we deliver to our clients. We believe that NDT plays a crucial role in everyday life. We assist clients to prevent environmental impacts from their operations and protecting the environment and the public are always first of mind for all of our technicians.
Buffalo regularly conducts internal audits on all of our technicians, both corporate and contractor, to ensure that our technicians demonstrate and maintain an active commitment to both quality and safety.
In March Buffalo Inspection Services Inc., completed a highly comprehensive review of all procedures, internal process and actions in compliance with the requirements to receive recertification of our ISO 9000 certificate. The whole team participated in the exercise that saw us receive a small number of minor non-conformances all of which have been addressed. We are now full accredited as ISO 9001-2015 and will undergo a review on an annual basis in accordance with the new ISO standards. A big thank you to all that supported this and the team who really stepped up to make this happen!
Providing the highest quality of service is a core value of Buffalo Inspection Services.
We believe that quality assurance and integrity of critical equipment and facilities are instrumental in the protection of the environment, public health, and life. We understand that managing quality in the NDT industry means that we must first understand the specific quality expectations for our clients and then put a proactive plan in place to meet and/or exceed those expectations.
By definition, Quality Control (QC) refers to the process and the procedures used in creating the NDT product or services delivered. This is generally undertaken by subject matter experts (SME’s) to meet the clients and code requirements.
Buffalo Inspection Services has invested heavily in the production of code compliant NDT procedures for performing each NDT method systematically and to the best industry practices.
Our NDT procedure manual contains the latest updated procedures and include all applied ASME V discipline requirements.
NDT procedures are the core of Buffalo’s QC system and ensure a controlled and repeatable NDT application that satisfies both our customer’s inspection and code requirements.
Quality Assurance and Quality Control
Regularly scheduled field and report auditing is conducted to ensure that technicians are performing and providing our clients with high quality information that meets/exceeds all of their requirements. Buffalo also has an extremely robust SNT certification program which verifies levels of competency in technicians who are certified in various NDE disciplines.
QA and QC work as one and BOTH must be performed to ensure that the NDT deliverables meet or exceed our customer’s quality requirements.
