As those chiefly involved in the procurement, safe operation and ongoing maintenance of pressure systems, end users are responsible for assuring that their equipment is up to standard. This is inherently challenging, particularly for smaller organisations, as it is not possible to oversee all aspects of the global supply chain.
The latest in the Institution's popular series of Pressure Systems events, this seminar will provide engineers with expert guidance and industry case studies on ensuring the required standards of quality and safety for both new and existing pressure assets.
Attendees will hear how engineers have addressed common challenges to ensure quality and cement best practice. Join the seminar to hear presentations from key industry experts and case studies from organisations across the supply chain.
Finally, the panel discussion will give all attendees the opportunity to have their burning questions answered and submit what they see as their own hot-topics for the future of the pressure systems industry.
