API Q1 Quality Management Standard – an infographic

Our API Q1 Infographic – A look at The API Q1 Quality management Standard for the Oil & Gas Industry

CHARTER4 have devised an API Q1 Infographic to help industry managers look at their approach to this important Quality Standard. In this article we look at how our unique approach to the certification process can help you to improve your business.

Important standard in Oil & Gas Industry

The API Q1 Quality Standard for the Oil & Gas Industry is an important Quality Management Standard. However, it goes beyond being a simple award. The Standard is actually essential if your business wants to be competitive in the oil & gas industry. In fact, if you want to supply certain categories of goods to your customers in the industry your business must comply to the standard and the relevant API technical Specification. The API Q1 Standard represents important aspects of both safety and risk management. Without the supporting certification, your customers would not have any method of gauging your suitability for the production of quality, safe and consistently reliable products. Afterall, the oil and gas industry must meet high standards of safety and must ensure that the risks to customers are minimised. These are basic premises for success.

API Q1 Infographic

CHARTER4 have produced an API Q1 Infographic. It aims to help industry managers understand the background to API Q1 and the changes which led to the 9th Edition. If your organisation is interested in making products for this industry, then this API Q1 Infographic will help you to unpack the background requirements. Also, it will help you to think about what steps you should follow to achieve a successful certification. You can download the API Q1 Infographic here (link to be added).

Beyond certification

The importance of a quality standard goes beyond just achieving the certification. The API Q1 is a quality management standard. Consequently, successful certification should improve the standard of your management system within your business. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. Some supporting organisations will help you to gain the certification by ensuring you tick all the relevant boxes, but no more than that. At CHARTER4 we aim to ensure that all aspects of your business are supported by the system itself. We don’t only want you to be successfully certified, we want you to see a real return for your investment in your management system. Actually, we want to help you go further and improve your business, rather than just comply.

Special commitment to success

This compliance and business-improvement approach has helped our clients become better businesses. Simultaneously, they have met the high standard of requirements that this industry demands. Our commitment to helping you improve in all aspects of your business is central to our philosophy of certification and business success.
