Our company

As a private research agency, GORPA has been around for some time now. If you hire us, you are assured of a professional approach where independence and quality are guaranteed, partly due to our extensive experience.

But we offer more than just knowledge and skills. You can count on a systematic working procedure and a scientific investigation method. You will be given our findings, hypotheses and well-founded conclusions presented in a well-documented and well-substantiated final report, which is regarded by many as the benchmark in the market.

GORPA can rely on fire experts certified by the International Association of Arson Investigators (Fire Investigation Technician, IAAI-FIT). The IAAI certificate is well-known in the market worldwide.

It goes without saying that we also have all the necessary permits and our investigators are affiliated with the NIVRE (Dutch Institute of Register Experts); for many of you this is a name that requires no further explanation. As a member of the NIVRE, quality is guaranteed by, among other things, the Permanent Education (PE) system.

Working method

GORPA has developed a unique method that is based on a scientific approach. The methodical way of working and use of the most modern tools ensure that you are assured of a high-quality investigation and final report.

For example, we regularly use a 360-degree camera so that no detail will escape our eye and we frequently use a drone to collect additional data. It goes without saying that we are equipped with the necessary training, certificates, licenses and a drone with trained pilot (ROC Light). Implementing innovation is a means for us to grow along with the changing demand and wishes from the market and is therefore also an integral part of our corporate culture.
