Quality Management System Requirements for Organizations Providing Products for the Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry, 10th edition, Sep 2023, Effective Date: Sep 18, 2024

API Spec Q1, 10th Edition has been developed to address quality management systems for organizations in the petroleum and natural gas industry. It defines the fundamental quality management system requirements for organizations claiming conformity to this specification. This specification may be applied by organizations that provide product (3.1.17) for use in the petroleum and natural gas industry. As defined in 3.1.17, this specification uses the term “product” to refer to the “output of an organization intended to be provided to a customer”. Previous editions of this specification limited the application to organizations which manufactured a physical product, performed servicing on a physical product, or performed manufacturing related processes.

This edition addresses the following types of organizations in the petroleum and natural gas industry.

  • Manufacturing
  • Engineering/design
  • Physical product realization activity providers such as those performing:
  • Welding
  • Heat treating
  • Coating/plating
  • Machining
  • Inspection
  • Testing
  • Servicing
  • Physical product-related activity providers such as those performing:
  • Distribution
  • Logistics
  • Software development

The requirements of this specification are consistent with those of other quality management system documents. The requirements are intended to minimize the likelihood of nonconformity. While this specification may include some elements of other management systems (such as those particular to environmental management, occupational health and safety management, financial management, or risk management), it does not include all requirements specific to those systems. This specification may be used either in conjunction with or independent of other industry-specified documents.

API Spec Q1, 10th edition can be used by internal and external parties, including certification bodies, to assess the organization’s ability to meet customer, statutory, and regulatory requirements applicable to the product and the organization’s own requirements.
