Holistic Organization Evaluations

By employing robust auditing methodologies, companies can identify potential bottlenecks, inefficiencies, or non-conformities that may compromise the quality and safety of their operations throughout the organization. It contributes to risk mitigation, minimizing the potential for accidents, environmental harm, or disruptions to supply. PPI provides comprehensive quality assurance auditing that evaluates processes, products and systems.

Process Auditing

Examining the adherence to established process controls (protocols, guidelines, and standards) to ensure that processes are implemented, adequate and effective.

Product Auditing

Assessing product specifications, performance, functionality, and conformance with relevant company and industry standards and/or compliance with regulatory and statutory requirements.

System Auditing

Review of an organization's policies, procedures, documentation, and practices to verify applicable elements of the system are appropriate and effective and have been developed, documented, and implemented in accordance and in conjunction with specified requirements.

Auditing Experts Confirm Adherence to Industry Regulations and Standards

All PPI auditors are certified and have at least five years of experience in their fields. We perform audits that confirm implementation of organization QMS and industry standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001, API Q1, and Q2. The audit includes:

  • Key focal points on safety: QMS maturity; technical capability; best practices and continual improvement; and competency and training
  • Interviews with staff to assess their knowledge of the organization’s QMS and other quality standards applicable to their work.
  • Reports that identify strengths, non-conformities, gaps, and opportunities for improvement as well as highlighting success stories and focus the organization on improving key points of the QMS.

In addition to auditing your organization, PPI can also audit the performance of your suppliers or vendors. These can either be recurring audits, or audits scheduled when something changes. For example, when moving manufacturing of a particular component from one plant to another, an audit can provide assurance that the new plant can manufacture the component(s) to specifications.

Auditing Services

When conducting third-party audits, our experts take several steps to ensure comprehensive and effective evaluations.

  • Planning: Defining the scope, objectives, and criteria for the audit, considering relevant regulations, standards, and specific industry requirements.
  • Reporting: Preparing a detailed audit report summarizing findings, observations, and recommendations; clearly communicating non-compliance issues, identify root causes, and propose corrective actions to address identified deficiencies
  • Pre-audit Preparation: Gathering necessary documentation, such as policies, procedures, permits, and records related to the energy operations; reviewing processes, systems, and performance data.
  • Follow-up and Verification: Monitoring progress in implementing corrective actions; conducting follow-up audits or reviews to verify the effectiveness of the implemented measures and ensure compliance with recommended improvements.
  • On-site Assessment: Visiting facilities and conducting thorough on-site inspections; interviewing personnel, observing operations, and verifying compliance with applicable regulations, safety protocols, and industry best practices.
  • Continuous Improvement: Encouraging incorporation of the audit findings into management systems, processes, and practices; promoting a culture of continuous improvement by emphasizing the importance of acting upon audit recommendations.
  • Data Collection and Analysis: Collecting evidence, observations, and data during the audit; analyzing the collected information to identify gaps, non-conformities, and areas of improvement.
