I totally agree with all that has been said in this article, I'm a coating specialist engaged by the shipyard to look into assisting them to communicate with their client and propose technical query to resolve some issue related to the specification which is not practical to be achieved under the present situation of the location where the new build is done and also on the complexity of the structure for coatings. The painting inspector engaged by the client could only see the words in the specification and not at all using their experience to understand in which the coated surface is going to work in and getting very petty on very minor issues which is causing considerable delays on the schedule.

I totaly agree with artical above I have been in the industy 50 yrs. Taken the SSPC exam. 4 times and failed the test odd isn't it. My attitude has always been one to assist and teach the oncoming interested inspectors, I have been a contractor for many yrs, off shore, pettrochemical, industrial where does my experiance fail not to have the cridintials, are my piers over selous?

Actually all inspectors have to be ideal to ensure that all works concerned follow the specifications. It depends on the readiness of the contractors to commit to the works given done with quality and on schedule. It takes two to tango, remember.
