Description / Abstract:


This document defines the quality management system requirements for service supply organizations for the petroleum, and natural gas industries. It is intended to apply to the execution of upstream services during exploration, development and production in the oil and gas industry. This includes activities involved in oil and gas well construction, intervention, production, and abandonment. This document applies to activities associated with well servicing, equipment repair/maintenance, and inspection activities.

This document specifies requirements of a quality management system for an organization to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide services that meet customer, legal, and other applicable requirements.

This document was developed by a group of upstream technical experts. While this document and/or portions thereof could be applicable to other industry segments, it is recommended that other segments carefully review these requirements to determine their applicability and if necessary develop a segment annex identifying any segmentspecific requirements.


When an organization performs activities addressed by this document, including the provision of service-related product, all requirements shall be performed and no claims to exclusion of those requirements shall be permitted. Where exclusions may be possible or where service-related product is not provided, the basis for claiming exclusions shall be identified and such exclusions shall not affect the organization's ability, or responsibility, to meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. Exclusions shall be limited to requirements within the following clauses:

— 5.7.3 Identification and Traceability

— 5.7.4 Service-related Product Status

— 5.7.6 Preservation of Service-related Product

— 5.7.7 Validation of Service-related Product

— 5.7.8 Preventive Maintenance, Inspection and Test Program

Where claims of conformity are made, exclusions shall be identified in conjunction with these claims.

The quality management system requirements specified in this document are complementary to requirements for services. Informational statements marked “NOTE” are not requirements but are provided for guidance in understanding or clarifying the associated requirement.
