  • A design review with the company's design team
  • Identified where the design did not meet ESHRs and where possible, identified how the non-compliance could be rectified
  • Assisted Client to produce a complete technical file
  • Identified components needed for a light Technical File which could be shared with potential clients
  • Managed the production of this file

What the customer did:

  • Participated in design review

  • Produced the required documentation to complete both Technical Files
