Crown Agents’ Quality Assurance and Inspection Services acknowledged for best practice and highest standards in safety, quality, health, ethics and sustainability /

We are pleased to announce that Crown Agents’ Quality Assurance and Inspection Services (QAIS) has become a Full Member of the Testing and Inspection (TIC) Council.  

The TIC Council is an international association representing independent testing, inspection and certification companies. Membership of this prestigious organisation is recognised internationally, and TIC Council accreditation means that our QAIS operations conform to best practice and the highest standards in safety, quality, health, ethics and sustainability. TIC Council membership is increasingly regarded by potential inspection clients as a prerequisite, and as such this status now confirms our credentials as a preeminent provider of inspection services. 

As the voice of the global independent testing, inspection and certification industry, the TIC Council engages governments and key stakeholders to advocate for effective solutions that protect the public, support innovation and facilitate trade. Drawing on our 120 years of inspection and quality assurance experience, we have aligned our operational principles in accordance with council guidelines, in order to promote best practice across our various fields of work.  

Crown Agents’ QAIS provides a range of inspection types, from vendor appraisal, to pre-and-post-shipment inspections, to sampling and lab testing. As an international leader in end-to-end supply chains, with a global network of highly skilled inspectors, we can ensure that products anywhere meet expectations, regulations and legislation, whilst complying with the highest ethical and sustainable standards of procurement. 

Our key strengths are centred around the quality of the services we render, the trust we share with our clients, the level of integrity we display, and the high degree of transparency we ensure throughout all our activities.  

We’re therefore delighted to have been recognised as leaders in the inspections and quality assurance sectors, with this exclusive membership reflecting the high operational standards we adhere to around the world.
