Emerson Successfully Completes First Point Assessment (FPAL)

Independent audit validates structure and working practices around Health, Safety and Environmental controls

Emerson Process Management has announced that it has completed the First Point Assessment (FPAL) Verify assessment. Achieving FPAL Verify status reduces risk for oil and gas industry purchasers by providing an enhanced level of supplier assurance. It also saves them time and money by giving access to shared on-line supplier assessment reports and improvement plans which are specifically focussed on the oil and gas industry. Tender processes are streamlined by giving on-line access to reliable generic pre-qualification Health, Safety and Environmental Supplier data.

FPAL auditors validated the structure and working practices of Emerson, around their Health, Safety and Environmental controls. FPAL manages the oil and gas supply chain database for the UK and The Netherlands. It is a key tool used by purchasers in the oil & gas industry to identify and select current and potential suppliers when awarding contracts or purchase orders.
“Achieving FPAL Verify status is critical to our business and is a clear indication of our ongoing commitment to our customers within the oil and gas market,” said Paul Smith, UK and Ireland General Manager for Emerson Process Management. “FPAL Verify status gives our customers reassurance that our systems and procedures meet the same rigorous health and safety and environmental standards as theirs do.”

Verify is a supplier assessment service that involves a ‘Verification Visit’ to a nominated supplier’s premises to assess Health, Safety and Environmental practices in alignment with the oil and gas industry’s OGP & NORSOK standards. The results of the visit, along with individual supplier improvement plans, are then shared on-line between those FPAL purchasers who participate in the Verify scheme. Emerson’s scores were above average, in particular with the scores of 8.5 for the Environment and 8.3 for Health and Safety.
