Risk Based Inspection (RBI)

Risked Based Inspection (RBI) typically requires significant upfront investment by the owner/user. However, with the use of IRISNDT software management (MT Field Services), skills, experience such as understanding failure mechanisms and the ability to record quality, reliable and repeatable data an RBI approach to plant inspection can be adopted and managed by IRISNDT. Benefits of RBI from more traditional time based inspections can lead to reduced downtime, extended inspection intervals as well as improved safety standards which can result in genuine cost savings.

The following documents cover RBI and it’s advantages in more detail, API 580, API 581 and EEMUA 206.
