API Q1 and Q2 Applications – CHARTER4 supported more than 30% of applicants

The API Q1 and Q2 Applications this year – CHARTER4 supported more than 30% of applicants

API Q1 and Q2 have a significant part to play in the Oil and Gas Industry. CHARTER4 has provided  support and assistance positions covering both of these Quality Management Specifications developed by the American Petroleum Institute. In fact, for the 9th Edition API Q1 Standard upgrade, CHARTER4 Solutions assisted 30% of Applicants in the UK.

The API Standards

Quality Management in the Oil and Gas industry falls under the API Specifications Q1 and Q2. API standards are for certification of either companies manufacturing components or who provide services in this industry. Critically, the emphasis is on the identification of and compliance to good practice, training, and improving quality standards. Significantly, risk assessment and risk management also form an important part of the structure of the standards. The API Q1 and Q2 specifications are based on ISO 9001. However, they maintain supplementary conditions for industry-specific requirements. Consequently, CHARTER4 specialise in helping clients reach their potential by capitalising on their unique specialisations within the business.

The Specifications

The two specifications cover slightly different sectors of the industry as follows…

  • API Q1. This is the specification for the Quality Management System Requirements required by the Manufacturing Organisations within the Oil and Natural Gas Industry.
  • API Q2. This spec. identifies the Quality Management System Requirements for Service Supply Organisations within Oil and Natural Gas Industries.

CHARTER4 has undertaken significant support and assistance positions covering both of these Quality Management Specifications. So, we are well placed to assist you in improving your industry position.

We would like to congratulate our clients on successfully achieving their API upgrade certification following their Applications or marking their products with the API Monogram.
