This August, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is, if your marine vapor control system (MVCS)  was commissioned between August 15, 2011 and August 15, 2016, then your system must undergo an operational review (OR) before the five-year anniversary of your initial certification date. That means if your system was commissioned in August 2016, you’re running out of time! 

The good news, of course, is that Aura Engineering can make your operational review a simple and painless process. Often, we hear from clients who know their facility needs an operational review and are also certain they may have to address a few items before they’re ready for it. If that’s the situation you find yourself in, what should you do?  

First, take a deep breath—it’s going to be ok! This is a common occurrence, and the seasoned team at Aura has a solution for clients who may need a review before the review to help ensure compliance. We offer a service we call pre-operational review gap analysis to address just this type of situation. 

During pre-operational review gap analysis, our technical personnel put your MVCS through the same tests that will occur during your operational review. Following these on-site tests, Aura will provide a detailed findings/recommendations report that outlines any maintenance services and equipment that your MVCS needs in order to pass the review and maintain regulatory compliance. 

Once recommendations are made, our service and equipment procurement teams will quickly get to work preparing your system for its OR. This gives our clients the confidence they need to schedule an operational review before the deadline. Even better, we will schedule the review for you! 

After providing pre-operational review gap analysis, Aura can no longer be the certifying entity on record for your operational review. Instead, for the ease of our clients, we will remain your point of contact and schedule another trusted certifying entity to come out and complete the OR. 

Our pre-operational review gap analysis services have saved many clients valuable time and money by ensuring that their systems are compliant prior to their OR. We make it easy by ensuring you have everything in place to undergo and smooth and simple review process. If you’re ready to get proactive about your operational review, contact us today. Aura Engineering can ensure that your operational review is stress-free!
