VeriSourceTM OQ Compliance Management represents a key component of our uniquely comprehensive OQ compliance solution, enabling pipeline operators to manage all aspects of contractor OQ qualification tracking and recordkeeping within a single software application, which avoids the risks inherent in pushing OQ data into a separate contractor management system and creates a simpler, more reliable solution to ensure compliance with the DOT/PHMSA OQ Rule (49 CFR Part 192 and 49 CFR Part 195).
