Compliance InSight Consulting Inc. was formed in the spring of 2000 and formally incorporated in the Province of Ontario, Canada. The first year of operation included significant travel in the US and abroad, servicing clients marketing their products in Europe.
From the spring of 2001 through to the fall 2007, Compliance InSight supported work through QPS Evaluation Services Inc. and Entela, Inc. in the machinery safety field. More than 300 Ontario Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews were conducted by QPS Engineers with field assessment and analysis done by Doug Nix.
In 2008, CIC and QPS amicably parted ways. CIC continues to provide a variety of regulatory, machinery safety analysis, consulting and training services to clients, and to support Indagate Engineering Corporation in providing Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews conducted by Indagate engineers.
