TRI’s unique, independent in-plant geosynthetic sampling services are widely recognized throughout the worldwide materials procurement industry. Still, we often encounter questions regarding in-plant sampling procedures, the true independence or non-independence of part-time sampling procedures, and general policies regarding materials access, and safety. These procedures are unique to each geosynthetic manufacturing plant and TRI’s in-plant sample management personnel follow strict protocols when granted access in the facility. TRI invests considerable resources to documenting production, sampling materials, processing sampled geosynthetics and shipping in a timely fashion to meet project schedules. New information will be presented in 2019 in order to greater inform clients about these procedures and provide transparency to sampling operations. Look for more information soon in this regard.
