What Does a Material Review Controller (MRC) Do?

Material review controllers order, transport, and inspect materials to ensure they conform to product specifications.

Material review controllers maintain documentation and verify the approval of any hazardous supplies, diligently reporting any violations or damages. They review company requests for completeness, accuracy, and also triage tasks in terms of priority— coordinating and expediting the flow of work. MRCs schedule production and shipping, gauging progress as well as inventory control levels and any issues that may arise.
