Are you doing what you said you would do?…

As we setup commissioning we draft many policy documents, how we will punch list, how we will manage change, what our policy is going to be to manage those instances during commissioning where we need to temporarily defeat systems, all set the scene for our management systems, but what then?

Has your commissioning team setup a robust audit or checking scheme that during commissioning execution, revisit the procedures we setup during the preparation phase to manage our activities? It is certainly worthy of consideration. In highly regulated industries, would it not be better to self-assess than wait an inspection and have a third party find the types of things you may be embarrassed they could find?

So great job, you have setup your management systems, but now consider putting a checking scheme in place that confirms you are doing what you said you would do…

Safe and successful commissioning always…
