Today, compliance with regulatory requirements is an incredible opportunity for companies to improve performance and—in turn—client satisfaction. We believe in developing services that are more agile and digital-oriented than ever before in a bid to take efficiency to the next level. Drawing on our 75,000 employees in 140 countries, Bureau Veritas will be putting its network of experts and technological leadership to work in meeting Safran's needs." 

Under the terms of the partnership, a shared platform will be rolled out for use by the two companies for a more seamless technical inspection process. This tool should facilitate operational implementation for improved performance levels across the board.
