As a facility owner, how can I justify the cost of quality control measures, such as third-party inspection, to upper management in my company?

How to justify the cost of QA/QC! Because repairing incorrectly used products costs a great deal more than doing the job correctly the first time. This is all we need to justify the question regarding justifying and using QA/QC. We have experienced several examples that justify this comment, all involving splash-zone corrosion protection. Most repairs cannot be made in the tidal zone using the original (coating) products. So, this then involves increased cost and technology using tidal zone and immersion service products and more expensive underwater application procedures.

From David Lemke of Team Industries, Inc. on September 11, 2019:
Investigating Failure Look at the article from JPCL, December, 2018 by Rob Lanterman, "The Really Premature Coating Failure." When your material is already rusting before erection at the site, this is a good example for why some inspection should have taken place before shipment.
