INTERNAL CONTROL AND QUALITY ASSURANCE MANUAL
EPGC, developed an internal manual that contains the field, laboratory and adminstrative procedures of our work processes according to NMX, ASTM and SCT standards with the purpose of obtaining an operating capacity and to carry out the tests, essays or calibrations that are required for a specific study or work.
IMPARTIALITY, INDEPENDENCE AND INTEGRITY
EPGC has dispositions to ensure that the personnel is free from any commercial, financial or other kind of pressure that may adversely affect the results of their work. Any influence of a person or organizations of others on the results of the tests or field and laboratory tests will also be avoided. We do not make any commitment in activities that could put at risk the integrity and independence of judgment of the personnel that works in the company.
ORGANIZATION AND INTERNAL CONTROL
The organization and distribution of authority, as well as the responsibilities of field and laboratory personnel are defined in an internal organization manual. All staff is aware, both of the extent, and limitations of their area of responsibility. The organic structure maintains the ability to perform satisfactorily its technical functions, since it has a quality control system for its work, which is clearly established in the internal organization manual and consisting of:
- The quality inspection carried out by the performers of the tests, assays or calibrations during their lab work.
- The quality verification performed by the control technicians of the work through the correct execution of the assays and field tests.
- A quality validation directly dependent on the project manager or head of work control, with the purpose of validating the results obtained by the laboratory or field personnel, who execute the essays and testing.
