GOOGLE EARTH your Supplier - An onsite inspection of a potential test lab may be costly and just not feasible.
In the critical process of vetting a potential company to guard your intellectual property, prevent contamination of your product or physical security of your R&D project /Work in Process, you can minimize your risks from an unknown source, a fancy website or a "fee-based" referral.
By using GOOGLE EARTH, you may discover a house, a basement, a garage or, even, an off shore facility just by conducting a simple search of the physical address. Keep in mind that a fancy website may very well be the unknown source for a non-compliant or suspect counterfeit product or service you may be buying into. Brand Identity is just as important today as the reputation of your company.
