API Spec Q1
Based on API’s Spec Q1, Specification for Quality Programs, companies that either manufacture products to API specifications, or provide industry services not covered by an API standard, can apply for API Spec Q1 Registration. By meeting the quality system requirements of API Spec Q1, companies can show their customers they meet the industry’s demands by becoming an API Spec Q1 Registered Organization.
API Spec Q2
API Spec Q2 is the first international quality management system standard for service supply organizations offered by the American Petroleum Institute. Published in December 2011, API Spec Q2, Specification for Quality Management System Requirements for Service Supply Organizations for Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries outlines fundamental quality management system requirements that are critical to upstream operations. The industry-written specification applies to critical activities such as well construction, intervention, production, abandonment, well servicing, equipment repair and maintenance, and inspection activities.
Service supply organizations will implement the requirements of API Spec Q2 throughout their quality management systems, creating a larger, more qualified service supply base. Compliant service supply organizations will boast superior quality management systems that control all operational processes, provide consistent results, manage change effectively, continually improve, reduce operational downtime, and increase customer satisfaction.
