Our Experience

Authorized by ASEA and BSEE

CICS Americas is the first and only international auditing firm that has been AUTHORIZED to perform third party audits for both; SEMS in the USA by BSEE and for SASISOPA in Mexico by ASEA.

Competent auditors in USA and Mexico

We have auditors in the US and in Mexico that are fluent in English and Spanish to ensure understanding from all members and levels of your team during an evaluation.

Hydrocarbon industry specialists

We have the most experience in the market in auditing management systems in the hydrocarbon industry having audited on shore as well as offshore facilities all through North America including in the Pacific, the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska waters.

20 years of experience back us

We have over 20 years of experience in the Mexican hydrocarbon industries having performed consulting and auditing work there for PEMEX and many of its subsidiaries.

 

We are the only company that clearly understands these ASEA requirements while at the same time having experience auditing Safety and Environmental Management Systems in international markets.

Our approach

Just like winning coaches, we will push your management system to become the best it can be

We will maintain an understanding of the ultimate goal, ensuring your system’s effectiveness in achieving the established objectives.

 

We have worked for mega registrars for whom clients are just a number in a profit and loss statement and whose auditors focus on nitpicking and pulling your management system apart. This is contrary to our approach.
