Quality management

Implementation of professional demining, explosive ordnance disposal and security contracts requires that we have a complete and modern quality control system that can handle these types’ tasks.
AL-SAQAR has its own QM system but often works with internal and external quality contractors, such as consulting engineering firms, which carry out the practical part of quality assurance (QA) and final control (QC).
AL-SAQAR has its own documentation program, which makes daily inspections of the current quality possible, and also include a reporting system that is compatible with the e.g. IMSMA. This system can also be associated with other quality management and reporting systems the customers could want to use in existing projects. The solution can be implemented as a web-based solution.

The international standards and guidelines in general terms describe, how quality is assured through the ongoing QA and the final QC of the product, and AL-SAQAR lives up to these standards at any time.

AL-SAQAR also provides consultants to the technical part of the quality assurance, where AL-SAQAR consultants are involved in the daily technical inspections. AL-SAQAR also participates in the ending QC in which control of technical equipment is made.

Quality control in accordance to security contracts have proven to be extremely important. For security surveys, implementation of mail-package-handling concepts and implementation of a blast protection system, it is extremely important, that we follow the right path from start to finish to cover all aspects of the proceedings from the beginning.

GIS

AL-SAQAR offer you a unique and specialized mapping and documentation product for various EOD and Mine Clearance operations all over Iraq.

Many clearance projects in the Iraq today fail in handling the reporting, mapping and documentation in an acceptable manner.

 

We make sure that all documentation are developed in GIS (Geo Information Systems).

Furthermore, we produce and present documentation in several ways, such as project status maps, final documentation, databases and websites.

The structure of the documentation makes it useful for both planning, project management, quality control and final hand-over of a clearance task.

The documentation process is divided into modules, which means that individual modules can be selected or deselected according to your company/organization needs.

The documentation contains the following modules:

  • Air photos for planning
  • Staking out the areas using GPS
  • Creation of maps and reports
  • Database
  • Websites
  • Report system integration (also with IMSMA)
  • Support
  • Training

Our support also includes:

  • GPS
  • Computer Hardware
  • Software
  • Online mapping/documentation/EOD advice
