Arbitrage en mediation
Very often mediation is the way forward to avoid a legal approach to a problem. If an arbitration legal case cannot be avoided DCC will assist you as a “witness expert”.
A cost estimate can be used as a check on a quotation or may be used for budgetary purposes. DCC provides cost estimates that are in line with the current benchmarks.
A thorough coating specification is a necessary basis for any successful coating project. It converts expectations into concrete requirements. DCC supplies unambiguous specifications that provide clarity for all parties involved.
A thorough failure analysis is not just a report containing an accumulation of laboratory test results. In addition to the use of the relevant techniques, having the right strategy is of even greater importance. DCC has many years of experience in performing failure analysis.
Detecting carcinogenic or toxic substances in existing coating systems is a vital step in protecting people and the environment. DCC runs analysis on existing coating systems and provides a thorough interpretation of the test results.
Inspection is the method to determine to what extent explicit specifications requirements are met. DCC has professional certified coating inspectors with decades of experience. A DCC inspector relies exclusively on facts, not on opinions.
Training is the way forward to increase knowledge, “refresh” knowledge or to work towards an official certification path. DCC Training BV is the focal point where acquired knowledge and decades of experience are available.
DCC is specialized in providing training and education. Our instructors have decades of experience. DCC has set up a separate BV where “training and education” are core activities. The name of this company is Dutch Coating Consultants Training BV.
