HPi Verification Services and ABS Group, the consulting division of the American Bureau of Shipping, have recently signed a partnership agreement to provide a combined PED inspection and certification service to industry all over the world. The arrangement ensures that customers of either company benefit from having local ABS inspectors with both ASME and PED credentials combined with HPi’s highly experienced design review team and Notified Body status. HPi CEO, Alasdair Reay, said “HPi is delighted that ABS made the approach to partnership with us. As an ex-employee of ABS myself, I know the nature of the company and greatly admire ABS’ staff training programs in particular. HPi is convinced that the calibre of personnel that this partnership offers our customers is second to none.” For further details, please contact your nearest ABS Group office or HPi HQ.
