During the course of the construction phase, a major standard violation was committed by the contractor and despite various notifications have been communicated to the contractor still refuses to implement the corrective actions. While exhausting all the efforts within the organization and with the client contractor remain steadfast not to comply despite NCR has been issued. Now, As a QC Manager what will you do and what will be your action/s to pave the way to resolve the standard violation?

(Exhausting means the issue was brought to the higher management, SAMPT, operations etc).

QC Manager must bring the quality issue to SA Project Inspection supervisor describing all in details of the committed std violation and PID will take the necessary/serious action to correct the non-conformity. SAPID Field Supervisor being the main counterpart of the contractor QC Manager must interphase with PID with regards to Quality. SA Interviewer is keen to hear the acronym “PID” as the answer.
