Welcome to Quality Auditing

We set the standard in marine industry audits.

Quality Auditing, LC (QA) has been organized and operated with the intention of meeting the proposed requirements established by the Coast Guard for Third Party Organizations approved to provide audits of Towing Safety Management Systems (TSMS), and the vessels to which the TSMS apply, and to verify compliance with the provisions of Sub Chapter M, as proposed.

Our pool of experienced auditors are located throughout the inland river system to be close to audit sites to minimize travel costs. QA has performed over 200 audits since our inception, with audits conducted on the largest multi-vessel barges lines, as well as the smallest one-boat fleet. In addition, QA has developed a unique laptop-based auditing tool to provide consistent, quality audit results, with those results available through a secure internet portal, with absolute confidentiality.
