Lloyd’s Register (LR)--a global engineering, technical and business services organization--has partnered with Silicon Valley based greenfence, the first platform technology serving the Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) marketplace. greenfence offers LR unrivalled potential for connectability, scalability and interoperability of existing databases, schemes and systems, but also for future development and enhancement of assurance services across all industry sectors.  

LR believes that adopting greenfence will lead to greater levels of assurance for organisations with complex, high-risk supply chains such as food supply. LR expects greenfence will have a disruptive effect on traditional TIC business models, which compelled LR to take an early adopter position; this will see the development by LR and LRQA of a wide range of services utilising greenfence. LRQA is a member of the LR Group.

LRQA will have the ability to blend conventional assessment with digital monitoring and audit solutions that will enable the delivery of real-time assurance and insight, moving from a retrospective focus to predictive insight, from what went wrong to what is likely to go wrong.  It will augment and evolve current auditing and inspection processes to improve supply chain confidence, with wider and deeper system and data coverage, more effective targeting of existing and potential risks and better application of analysis, insight and advice.

greenfence uniquely connects everyone from large organisations to their smallest supplier and includes global standards/scheme owners and certification services.  Its platform, using the latest in Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Intelligent Automation, significantly reduces costs, increases capacity and provides visibility and transparency across the supply chain and increases trust through sourcing from authenticated and assured individuals and companies.
