“Highly recommend this group. I have utilized this Integrity/Compliance Group for many years.  They are compliance professionals that execute a comprehensive integrity/compliance program and/or processes that have been field tested against applicable regulatory requirements and company expectations to identify and remediate compliance risks.  This team brought an unmatched expertise and attention to detail to our company that we have never had or experienced from any other contractor.”

“Having concerns and not fully understanding the requirements associated with our Plant’s PSM Compliance Audit Program and Process, my management team hired Altamira’s Integrity/Compliance Group.  They walked me through the regulatory requirements in documenting all PSM Program Elements from start to finish.  I never expected them to sit side-by-side with me and make sure I not only understood what was expected of me (my Roles and Responsibilities) but also, completed and closed all identified Action Items and deficiencies that were identified.  We passed our PSM Compliance Audit with “No Findings” and one minor recommendation. I am in a much better position now because of them.”

“Altamira’s team has been a value-added resource for our Company Compliance Program Development.  The team generated our Plant’s Compliance Programs and qualified (trained) all personnel with the new Company format.  All of the Altamira personnel have been great to work with.  Our Company team has had nothing but positive feedback and stated this was the best training they have ever attended.”
